Modern mission on Mexico City's doorstep

A friend of mine, CFO at a multinational manufacturing corporation, participated, with his family – including a two year old – on a Regnum Christi organized mission to Malinalco, just outside Mexico City. He told me it’s an annual affair taking place from Palm Sunday to Easter Sunday.

This year, a group of about 60 Americans, Canadians, New Zealanders, and South Africans joined forces with him and about 40 Mexicans to serve the town’s parish and people.

Since the Malinalco family mission is ongoing from year to year, the missionaries’ work is long-term and committed, and they have had the chance to form relationships with the local people. Those who have been involved in the mission longest are keenly sensitive to their role as servants, not as tourists or spectators. They feel that Malinalco is their town too, and they care about how its local people are doing.

My friend referred me to a new blog complete with narrative and photos.
