During the Cristero War, on July 25, 1931, at 6: 10 p.m., soldiers entered the Parish of the Assumption Catholic Church, in Veracruz, and opened fire on the priests.
Father Ángel Darío Acosta Zurita had just come out of the baptistry when he was hit by the bullets.
Having only the time to cry out "Jesus!" he was martyred exactly three months after his priestly ordination. He was 22.
