Saint Jose Sanchez del Rio lived during the turbulent Catholic persecution in Mexico, by the Calles government, called the Cristero War. St. Jose had a love for Our Lady of Guadalupe and the Blessed Sacrament. He pleaded to be a Cristero at the young age of 13 and was finally allowed. During a fierce battle, the general’s horse was shot in which Jose, gave him his own horse. This cost him his life. He was captured and imprisoned. Jose’s captures ordered him to renounce his faith, but with courage he would not, yelling “Viva Cristo Rey and Long live Our Lady of Guadalupe". He died after being tortured, without a trial, at 14 years old. In 2016, Jose was canonized.
