Gabriel Garcia Moreno--Regenerator of Ecuador - Mrs. Maxwell Scott
Garcia Moreno was one of the most heroic, and certainly one of the most sincerely Christian leaders of South America during the 19th century. When most of South American had fallen into the hands of atheistic military barons who sought only to destroy the church and enrich themselves, Moreno fought opportunists on all fronts, resisted corruption, and reformed every aspect of Ecuadorian society according to Christian principles, before being brutally murdered by his Freemason enemies.
THE PRESIDENT, LADEN WITH THE PRECIOUS BURDEN, WALKED THROUGH THE STREETS.
