the passing of the last Cristero

“I have fought the good fight, I have kept the faith”

Don Juan Daniel Macias is in the center, flanking him on either side
are Don Feliciano Sanchez, and Don Tomas Ramirez.

Juan Daniel Macias Villegas died on 18 February 2016 at the age of 103 years in his native town of San Julián, Jalisco, Mexico.  He began fighting with the ‘Cristeros’ at the age of 13 years.  Don Macias was the last living soldier of the Cristero War. 

Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord.
And let the perpetual light shine upon him.
And may his soul and the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.

“¡Viva Cristo Rey!”

“Long live Christ the King!”


  1. They were the last of the Catholic crusaders.

  2. Requiescat in pace, Don Juan Daniel Macias... Gracias por tu testimonio de la Fe y el regno de Cristo!

  3. Pope Pius XI made a terrible blunder in telling these Catholic crusaders to put their weapons down. However, their greatest weapon, their Holy Rosaries, were always with them!

  4. In truth he is not the last cristero. All those who stand strong against the lies and deceit of the counterfeit church of the anti-christ are themselves cristeros.

    Which means I am a cristero.
