Report: Mexico Is a ‘Dangerous Country’ to Be a Catholic Priest


The Catholic Multimedia Center (CCM) in Mexico published its annual report this past week on violence and the Catholic Church, concluding that Mexico is “a dangerous country to exercise the priesthood in Latin America.”

The report enumerates 79 violent attacks perpetrated against members of the Catholic Church in Mexico between 1990 and 2021, including attacks on “1 cardinal, 61 priests, 1 deacon, 4 religious, 9 lay people and a Catholic journalist,” along with the unresolved disappearance of 2 priests.

To date, there is no news of the whereabouts of Father Santiago Álvarez Figueroa of the Diocese of Zamora who disappeared on December 29, 2012; and Father Carlo Órnelas Puga from the Diocese of Ciudad Victoria, who disappeared on November 3, 2013.
