Our church has a long history of Christian martyrs. Today’s Saint of the Day is Servant of God Joseph Perez who fought for religious freedom in Mexico and was murdered for his stance in defending the right to practice his faith. I would recommend that you watch the movie For Greater Glory about the story of the Cristeros and their battle for religious freedom. Here in America we will be focusing on religious liberty during the Fortnight for Freedom from June 20th to July 4th — please check links below for more information and ways to be involved.
