Ordained in 1925, Miguel Pro was a Jesuit priest in Mexico, where public worship was banned. Nevertheless, Pro continued his ministry in secret, often in disguise. When President Calles' car was bombed, Pro was wrongfully convicted. Hoping to portray Pro as a coward, Calles sent a photographer to the execution. The photo portrayed the truth: a brave Miguel Pro, arms outstretched, declaring, "Viva Cristo Rey!" (Long live Christ the King!)
