A group of Jesuits in Mexico, some from the U.S., have started a variation of the European worker-priest movement to bring Christianity into slum areas and factories. They do not work alongside the Mexicans, but visit plants and poor areas to celebrate Mass, hear confessions and give pastoral advice. In this photo, a Mexican priest, Father Cesar A. Gonzalez, says an open-air Mass for the poor. The Jesuts serve at the El Centra Laboral Mexico, or the Mexico Work Center. Religion News Service file photo
