Saint’s Biography

Saint Salvador Lara Puente was a seminarian at Durango in Mexico and was forced to drop out to help support his family financially. He helped St. Luis Batiz in his parish work. President of Catholic Action (ACJM). Secretary of the National League for the Defense of Religious Liberty (LNDLR).

On 29 July 1929, a LNDLR meeting drew a crowd of over 500. A few days later a group of soldiers gathered up the LNDLR officers, and announced they were taking them to the state capital to explain their position. After leaving town, the soldiers stopped the cars and accused their prisoners of plotting armed revolt against the government. Salvador was offered his freedom if he would recognize the legitimacy of Calle’s anti-religious government; he declined. Martyr.
