Course: Garcia Moreno: President of Ecuador
Gabriel Garcia Moreno was first elected to the presidency of Ecuador in 1861 and then twice after that. Besides restoring higher education and a good economy to his country, he made Ecuador a Catholic State in accordance with the Church's social teachings. His policies incurred the hatred of his enemies in his own government and the Freemasons, who brutally assassinated him on August 6, 1875 after he walked out of morning First Friday Mass.
This is the exciting, inspiring story of one of the greatest modern-day Catholic statesmen. He fought to keep his country Catholic against the enemies of Our Lord (e.g. Freemasonry, revolutionaries, atheists, etc.). May he be declared a great martyr-saint by the Church soon!
