St. Cristóbal Magallanes and Companions (d. 1915-1928) 
Like Blessed Miguel Agustín Pro, S.J., Cristóbal and his 24 companion
martyrs lived under a very anti-Catholic government in Mexico, one
determined to weaken the Catholic faith of its people. Churches, schools and
seminaries were closed; foreign clergy were expelled. Cristóbal established
a clandestine seminary at Totatiche, Jalisco. Magallanes and the other
priests were forced to minister secretly to Catholics during the presidency
of Plutarco Calles (1924-28). All of these martyrs except three were
diocesan priests. David, Manuel and Salvador were laymen who died with their
parish priest, Luis Batis. All of these martyrs belonged to the Cristero
movement, pledging their allegiance to Christ and to the Church that he
established to spread the Good News in society?even if Mexico's leaders once
made it a crime to receive Baptism or celebrate the Mass.

was distressed that he had said to him a third time, ?Do you love me?? and
he said to him, ?Lord, you know everything; you know that I love you.? Jesus
said to him, ?Feed my sheep. ~John 21:15-19

Jesus instructions are simple.  If we love Him, feed His sheep. When we do
so we imitate the actions of the Good Shepherd and follow God's plan for us
in our lives.
