In a powerful talk from our 2008 Deep in History conference, Patrick Madrid, whose own ancestors fled Mexico during an era of religious persecution, talks about the history of anti-Catholicism in Mexico during the beginning of the 20th century. He looks at the Revolutionaries who fought the government, the government that cracked down on the Catholic Church, and the role that priests and lay Catholics played in all of it. If you’re not familiar with the history of Christianity in Mexico, do yourself a favor and check out Patrick’s talk!
“We offer you the whole of this People of God. We offer you the Church in Mexico and in the whole continent. We offer it to you as your own, You have entered so deeply into the hearts of the faithful through that sign of your presence constituted by your image in the Shrine of Guadalupe; be at home in these hearts, for the future also. Be at home in our families, our parishes, missions, dioceses, and in all the peoples.”
-Saint Pope John Paul II
