My complete ignorance of all things finally paid off for me earlier this week when I saw “For Greater Glory.”
You see, I had no idea what happened in Mexico at the time of the Cristero War. None. And normally you’d think that for a Catholic writer, having no knowledge of a fairly recent persecution of Catholics by our next door neighbors would be…a bad thing. But it made “For Greater Glory” incredibly exciting for me to watch.
I honestly had no idea what was going to happen next during the movie. If you had told me that the President of Mexico was going to challenge the leader of Cristo Rey to a break dancing competition for all the marbles I would’ve said “O.K.”
All I can tell you is that the movie blew me away. Absolutely blew me away.
