Oh, yes, the Mexican bishops have repeatedly condemned the cults of La Santa Muerte and Jesús Malverde.

Satanism pure and simple-look at who practises it.Thugs,criminals,druglords.Santeria in so many words.A diabolical perversion of Christianity.
I go to Mexico regularly and I have never met more devout Catholics in my life.I correspond regularly with some and their faith and commitment to Christ and His Church astounds me.Mexico for all its negative press is an astoundingly beautiful place primarily because of her peoples who are in the main Faithful Catholics as a direct result of the Intervention of Our Lady of Guadaloupe.
