Mexican bishops will put pictures of dead priests in churches
MEXICO CITY (AP) — Mexico’s Council of Roman Catholic Bishops on Monday called on parishes across the country to put pictures of deceased nuns and priests in their churches this Sunday and hold masses for all those killed in the gang-fueled violence.
The call for special celebrations throughout July came after two Jesuit priests and a tour guide were murdered on June 20. Authorities have identified a local gang leader believed to be affiliated with the Sinaloa Cartel as a suspect in the killings. He remains free.
