MEXICO CITY — Roman Catholic authorities in Mexico say a priest has been killed in the west-central state of Jalisco, the second cleric slain in the country this week.

The Catholic Multimedia Center says that 33-year-old Juan Miguel Contreras Garcia was shot dead late Friday in Tlajomulco de Zuniga, on the outskirts of Guadalajara.

It said Saturday that early reports indicate he was killed by unidentified attackers in the parish office while performing the sacrament of penance.

According to the center, at least four priests have been slain in Mexico this year and 23 have been murdered since 2012. It says Mexico leads Latin America in the killings of priests.

On Wednesday, Rev. Ruben Alcantara Diaz was stabbed to death in his church on the outskirts of Mexico City.

    5. Your arms are too short to box with God my friend. God’s ways we couldn’t possibly comprehend. Have you read the beatitudes by any chance? Read them and then you’ll understand why God permits so much evil in this world.

    6. 2:47 please leave religion out of this, and go to he'll to fight your beatitudes...
      Man was given freedom to do as he pleases, with a promise of just desserts, and don't tell me about 11th hour pardons because of twisted reasons.

  3. Fuckin lame ass people that kill priest either kill them because the priests have the balls to talk the truth about peoples evil ways or because people have a miserable life to live and blame the priests for not being able to get out of the problems they are in!
    In other words only the most delincuent or ignorant - or both people are angry at priests for what they preach!
    Yeah yeah people can claim but only claim that the priest could have been "corrupt" but that itself can also be FALSE and just another excuse to justify their murder. Unless the murderer or commentators here have actual proof as to any priests actions what I, say stands.
    Proof is also not "I, heard" or "some people said" which is hearsay!

  8. 10:20 How can they?They don't respect anyone else. So why would they respect even themselves?Basically they really don't give a shit and its all about right NOW.If they really thought about consequences well that entails growing up and if that was the case they wouldn't be in the profession they are in.Too little too late.

  9. Damn killing priests should be a no no even to cartels, fucking ruthless. I thought the article would say a priest got hit by accident, but nope. Terrible

  11. The gov has flagrantly lowed the number of priests killed in Mexico. There are at least 3 dozen since 2010. in 2013 in two short months 5 priests killed in southern tamaulipas alone.

    mexico will manipulate cause of death eg "auto accident" in one case they declared as much even though the priests vehicle was never found. and some bodies are never located, so they suspnd in limbo, not dead ever even though they disappeared 5. 10, 20 years or longer.

    here is a good post explaining it all and why they are targeted.

    1. I read the article, chivis, there is blame of "cartels" but the people that hate priests the most are corrupt local politicians usually the ones in power for getting denounced by priests, as happened with Cardinal Posadas Ocampo, and the murderers are usually their most trusted police officers and military, these days we know more and we know better than blaming "narcos".

  12. The Cartels kill innocent people, including ladies, kids, horses and now on the spot light priests. Autodefensas are needed everywhere.

    1. Over the last 12 years, at about 20 to 30 thousand killed per year, you get from 240 000 to 360 000 Mexicans killed, most of them were innocent murdered by police and soldiers in a war to destabilize Mexico to buy the remains on the cheap at firesale prices,..
