History of San Cristobal Magallanes and Companions
San Cristobal Magallanes Jara was born in Totatiche, Jalisco on July 30, 1869. He was a priest of ardent faith and a prudent director of his brother priests. He was full of zeal in giving himself totally to the human and Christian development of his parishioners. During the persecution of the Church, and after the Seminary of Guadalajara was closed, he offered to help by establishing a seminary in his own parish with the end goal of protecting and forming future priests who would produce and abandan harvest. On the 25th of May 1927, San Cristobal made the ultimate sacrifice by giving his life. He was was shot to death by a firing squad in Colotlan, Jalisco (Diocese of Zacatecas). In front of the execution squad, he comforted his priest and companion in martyrdom, Father Agustin Caloca, saying: "Be calm, my son, only for a moment and then on to heaven." Then addressing the troops he exclaimed: "I die innocently, and I ask God that my blood may bring unity to my Mexican brothers."
