Mexican bishops to put photos of dead priests in churches

The Roman Catholic Council of Bishops of Mexico is calling on parishes across the country to place photos of dead nuns and priests in their churches this Sunday and to hold masses in support of all those killed as a result of group-led violence.

A call for special celebrations on Monday killed two Jesuit priests and a leader on July 20. Another priest says he was beaten in a violent state of Michoacan over the weekend. On June 24, the Council of Bishops issued an open letter telling the government that “it is time to review failing security policies.”

Father Mateo Calvillo wrote in an open letter that the men in another vehicle had cut off his car, forcing him to stop and that one of them had jumped out of his window and hit him hard. The priest said he did not know the motive for the June 29 attack in the town of Querendaro, saying the man seemed irrational.

as The Associated Press reported, two murdered priests — 79-year-old Javier Campos and 80-year-old priest Joaquín Mora — spent much of their lives serving the indigenous people of the Sierra Tarahumara Mountains. The Jesuits were shot dead in a small church in the village of Cerocahui.
