Solemn Eucharist for the Beatification of the Martyrs of Córdoba (Juan Elías Medina and CXXVI fellow martyrs). Bishop Demetrio Fernández, Bishop of Córdoba, presides, accompanied by Cardinal Marcello Semeraro, Prefect of the Congregation for the Causes of Saints.

“The priest, Juan Elías Medina, and 126 companion martyrs – priests, religious, seminarians and lay people – were killed in hatred of the faith during the violent religious persecution of the 1930s in Spain,” Pope Francis said the following day. “May their fidelity grant us all strength, especially persecuted Christians in various parts of the world, the strength to witness to the Gospel courageously.”
