"When he got to the cemetery, he was bleeding heavily. His torturers had also cut off the soles of his feet and forced him to walk on salt. The boy screamed with pain but would not give in. As the road was nothing but rocks and dirt, the stones where he had walked were soaked in his blood. The soldiers said: "If you shout, ‘Death to Christ the King’, we will spare your life." He only answered: "Long live Christ the King! Long live Our Lady of Guadalupe!""
Every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. Philippians 2:11 You may be saved, but have you allowed Jesus to be your Lord? Many of us who have identified as glib have allowed the world to be our Lord instead of Jesus.
