Viva Cristo Rey!
Federal forces entered to snuff out a small group of Cristeros, went to a house and found Father Jesús Mendez Montoya, who tried to save a ciborium with consecrated hosts. Discovered by the soldiers, he asked them for a moment to consume the Blessed Sacrament, and it was granted.
Then, with gentleness, he went to one of his sisters and said: "It is God's will. Let his will be done."
The soldiers took him a few meters outside the atrium of the church and sacrificed him with three shots, on February 5, 1928.
