It's only temporary, Tulita.

Calles won't be able to sustain this.

Besides, I was sure

our daughters will survive

without the, uh, nuns

slapping their palms,

all that holy nonsense.

It is not a joke.

It may mean nothing to you,

but it means everything to me.

Daddy, does that mean

no more catechism?

So we can play now?

You can study science for now.

You know how important this is to me.

It's only temporary.

Besides, I'm sure there'll be

plenty of clandestine services.

Oh, so the girls can feel like

they are doing something shameful

when they go to Mass?

[ sighs ]

What do you want me to do?




Go look at the hats.


as a military man, I can tell you

that it's only a matter of time

before Calles is overthrown.

In the meantime,

you can teach the girls at home.

Unless, of course, you want me to.

Excuse me.


For the repeal of the Calles Law.

Oh, excellent.

Thank you.

Good luck.

Excuse me, sir.

Please, for the repeal

of the Calles Law.

[ sighs ]

Please don't misunderstand me.

I'm a good Catholic.

But you're wasting your time.

Excuse me?

What good do you think this will do?

Calles can't ignore a million signatures.

I'm sorry to say he can and he will.

But on the other hand,

an economic boycott,

that would be quite

a different matter.

Brilliant, Adriana.

This is a brilliant idea.

[ chuckles ] Thank you,

but it wasn't mine.

It is very, very ambitious.

But why not?

A big sacrifice.

Only buy what we

absolutely need.

A type of Lent,

but this will attest to our faith.

And it will humble Calles.

[ door opens ]

Hello, Jose.

It seems Dr. Limn

has lost his watch.

Have you found anything

while you've been sweeping?

No, Padre.


He must have lost it

somewhere else.
