Saint Cristobal Magallanes and Companions

Prayer from The Roman Missal

Almighty and eternal God,
who made the Priest Saint Christopher Magallanes
and his companions
faithful to Christ the King even to the point
of martyrdom,
grant us, through their intercession,
that, persevering in confession of the true faith,
we may always hold fast to the commandments
of your love.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever.

The Cristeros battle hymn, called upon Jesus, Mary, and the saints in protection.

La Virgen María es nuestra protectora y nuestra defensora cuando hay que temer, 
Vencerá a los demonios gritando "¡Viva Cristo Rey!", 
Vencerá a los demonios gritando "¡Viva Cristo Rey!" 
Soldados de Cristo: ¡Sigamos la bandera que la Cruz enseña el ejército de Dios! 
Sigamos la bandera gritando, "¡Viva Cristo Rey!" 

The Virgin Mary is our protector and defender when there is something to fear, 
She will defeat the demons crying "Long live Christ the King!" 
She will defeat the demons crying "Long live Christ the King!" 
Soldiers of Christ let us follow the flag that the Cross shows the army of God! 
Let us follow the flag crying, "Long live Christ the King!" 

The evening prayer of the Cristeros, recited after the Rosary:

My Jesus Mercy! My sins are more numerous than the drops of blood that Thou did shed for me. I do not deserve to belong to the army that defends the rights of Thy Church and that fights for her. I desire never to sin again so that my life might be an offering pleasing to Thy eyes. Wash away my iniquities and cleanse me of my sins. By Thy Holy Cross, by my Holy Mother of Guadalupe, pardon me.

Since I do not know how to make penance for my sins, I desire to receive death as a chastisement merited by them. I do not wish to fight, live or die except for Thee and for Thy Church. Blessed Mother of Guadalupe, be at my side in the agony of this poor sinner. Grant that my last shout on earth and my first canticle in Heaven should be Viva Cristo Rey! Amen.
