27Sep The priests of Mexico, bleeding with their flock

Since 1990, 52 priests have been killed, according to a report by Mexico's Catholic Multimedia Centre.
Harry Farley writes in Christian Today about the recent murders of three priests in Mexico and quotes Roberto Blancharte, a scholar at the Colegio de Mexico, as saying that "there was a deep divide between the Church's hierarchy who tend to live in luxury and mix with corrupt politicians, and its clergy, who rub shoulders with the country's poorest"
Farley says 'The belief church leaders have cowed to pressure is widespread among parishes and the silence over murdered priests only fuels this perception. "When a priest gets killed, it should be a rallying cry," said David Shirk, director of the Justice in Mexico Project at the University of San Diego is quoted . "We should know his name. He should be a martyr."
