Sagrado Corazón is one of the Religions practiced in After the End. Sagrado Corazón is part of the Cult of Saints religious group.

Description[]

"The followers of Sagrado Corazón- the Sacred Heart- follow a pantheon of quasi-deities derived from Catholic traditions. Although the faith has Catholic origins, it has deviated far from the old theology, and the Catholic Church north of the border officially regards Sagrado Corazón as heretical." ― In-Game description of Sagrado Corazón

History[]

Catholicism in México has always deviated slightly from traditional Roman Catholicism, often bordering on a religion of it's own. After communication with Rome was cut off, however, the traditions that had given Mexico it's uniqueness in the Latin world took on a whole new life of their own, with the local population revering the most important aspects of Mexican culture as demigods- if not full gods.

While not all of pre-event Mexico follows this pantheon, the faith is large enough to be considered the dominant faith of Latin America.

In-Game Features[]

The primary feature of Sagrado Corazón is that adherents may follow one of three saint-patrons.

  • Our Lady of Guadeloupe - By far the most popular patron-saint in the Sagrado pantheon, Our Lady of Guadeloupe is the patroness of Lords, and protector of the Pious. While all Sagrado faithful may recieve visions brought on by the Virgin Mary, or Marian Apparitions, they are most commonly associated with patrons of Our Lady of Guadeloupe.
  • El Santo - A figure of the later antediluvian world, El Santo achieved legendary status with his martial prowess. Adherents of El Santo typically engage in a ritual combat, which includes masks and forbids any weapons. Being Un-masked during combat is considered the highest dishonor.
  • Santa Muerte - Adherents of Santa Muerte are usually inducted into the Cult of Death, or "Muertenos". Muertenos celebrate the passing of a soul to the underworld, rather than mourning it. However, if a soul reaches the underworld by... less than natural means, one can expect the family of the deceased to exact terrible revenge.

Mexicano cultures that are also Sagrado Corazon have access to Reconquista mechanics inside the de jure Empire of Mexico.

As of 2666, Sagrado Corazón has 60.0 moral authority.

A temple holder of the Sagrado Corazón faith is called a Padre.

Trivia[]

  • Sagrado Corazón takes it's name from "The Sacred Heart of Jesus", one of the most widely practiced Roman Catholic devotions.
  • El Santo is a reference to the famous Mexican Luchadore of the same name, who's wrestling career lasted nearly 50 years.
