Mexico City (AP) — Roman Catholic Bishop's Council of Mexico Called on Monday in parishes across the country, they placed pictures of dead nuns and priests in their church this Sunday and held a mass for all those killed in gang violence.
A special celebration call during July came after two Jesuit priests and a tour guide were killed on June 20th. Killing them. He remains roughly.
The council also faithfully called for praying on July 31 for the conversion or redemption of the murderer.
Meanwhile, another priest said he was beaten over the weekend in the violent western state of Michoacan.
Rev. Mateo Carbiro wrote in an open letter that a man traveling in another car stopped his car and stopped him, one of whom came to his window and barbarized him. Wrote that he was beaten. The priest said he was unaware of the motives for the June 29 attack in the town of Kerendaro, and said the man looked irrational.
On June 24, the Bishops' Council issued an open letter telling the government that "it was time to revise the failing security policy."
The two murdered priests, Rev. Javier Campos (79) and Rev. Hoakin Mora (80), spent much of their lives serving the indigenous peoples of the Sierra Tarahumara Mountains. The Jesuits were shot dead in a small church in the town of Sero Kahui.
The Church's Catholic Multimedia Center said seven priests were killed under the current administration, which took office in December 2018, and at least 20 were killed in the six years of the former president.
