Responding to the potential loss of the faithful in Mexico and elsewhere, Pope Leo XIII issued the encyclical Rerum Novarum , calling on the Church to become involved in social problems. In Mexico, some Catholic laymen supported the abolition of debt peonage on landed estates, which kept peasants tied to work there because they were unable to pay off their debts. The Church itself had lost lands during the Liberal Reform in the mid-nineteenth century, so it could voice support for the peasants' plight. The Church's success in the new initiatives can be seen as Zapatistas in Morelos carried out no anticlerical actions during the Mexican Revolution, [47] and many fighters wore the Virgin of Guadalupe on their hats.

The Law of Monuments gave jurisdiction over archeological sites to the federal government. This allowed the expropriation and expulsion of peasants who had been cultivating crops on the archeological sites, most systematically done at Teotihuacan.

Former cavalry officer and archeologist Leopoldo Batres was Inspector of Archeological Monuments and wielded considerable power. Along the wide, tree-lined boulevard, Paseo de la Reforma , laid out by Emperor Maximilian between the National Palace and Chapultepec Castle , was transformed as a site of historical memory, with statues commemorating figures of Mexican history and important historical events. The official centennial festivities were concentrated in the month of September, but there were events during the centennial year outside of September.

In September the central core of Mexico city was decorated and lit with electric lights many bedecked with flowers. Immediately following the centennial month, there was a book published, detailing the day by day events of the festivities, which included inaugurations of buildings and statues, receptions for dignitaries, military parades, and allegorical and historical processions. The high points of the celebrations were on 15 September, Diaz's 80th birthday, and 16 September, the centennial of Hidalgo's Grito de Dolores , considered the starting point of Mexico's struggle for independence in On Friday, 15 September, the day was marked by a huge parade representing the arc of Mexican history, focusing on the conquest of Mexico, the struggle for independence in the early nineteenth century, and the liberal reform of the mid-nineteenth century.

At 11 p. Diaz stood on the balcony of the National Palace and with the ringing of the bell from Father Hidalgo's church in Dolores, Diaz proclaimed "Viva Mexico.
