One comment on “(BBC) Mexico's 'Holy Death' cult growing

  1. A Senior Priest says:

    There a much better examination of Santa Muerte in a documentary of the same name narrated by Gael Garcia Bernal. This video here is a shallow and in a way deceptive take on the phenomenon, which embraces not only the criminal class, but also law enforcement personnel, gays, the poor and basically the marginalized in Mexico and the Southwest USA. If you look at the ultra-refined RC chapel in which the priest is being interviewed it’s easy to see why the modern RC Church in Mexico is out of touch with the cultural aesthetic of ordinary people.
