A 14-year-old boy is bound to be a saint this coming October 16, 2016 after he showed his bravery to spread out his love for his religion and being a Catholic towards the other religion.
The boy was named Jose Luis Sanchez Del Rio ( 28 March 1913 - 10 February 1928). He was punished and killed by the officials of the government. The head of Mexico, Plutarco Elias Calles, is an Atheist who does not believe in Christianity. He forced Jose Luis to turn his back on his religion.
When he was captured by the authorities of the government of Calles, they tried to scare him off by showing how they took the lives of the other devoters. But they failed to do so, they punished him by wounding his feet and letting him walk on the cemetery bare-footed.
Before he died, he managed to draw a cross and kiss it.
He was declared as a martyr and he was beatified by Pope Benedict XVI on November 20, 2005.
