Today the decree of canonization was issued for Saint Jose Sanchez Del Rio, the boy who would not deny Christ the King.
Points to remember: the hierarchy of Mexico refused to support the Cristeros.
The encyclical Quas primas, instituting the Feast of Christ the King, was issued on December 11, 1925, by Pope Pius XI in response to the suppression of Catholicism in Mexico.
The Mexican anticlerical laws are still on the books, but are not enforced.
