Pope Mourns 2 Slain Mexican Priests; Another Is Missing

Pope Francis has again condemned violence against life and human dignity, in reacting to the slaying of two Mexican priests whose bullet-ridden bodies were found Monday.

The Pope’s secretary of state sent the Holy Father’s condolences to Bishop Trinidad Zapata of Papantla, Mexico, for the killing of the two priests of his diocese, Father Alejo Nabor Jimenez and Father Alfredo Suarez de la Cruz.

Papantla is in the state of Veracruz in central Mexico, on the shore of the Gulf of Mexico.

Also on Monday, Father Jose Alfredo Guillen of the state of Michoac¡n, was kidnapped and it is not known if he is still alive or where he is being held.

The Holy Father’s message urged the clergy and pastoral workers of Papantla to “continue energetically your ecclesial mission despite the obstacles, following the example of Jesus, the Good Shepherd.
