'What we lack is peace'

Imagine trying to bring the light of Christ to people as drug cartels fight a vicious war around you. That's the reality many priests in Mexico face.

The Washington Post profiles one priest, Father Miguel Lopez, who's brutally honest about what it's like to serve people at great personal risk. 

"To me, the worst thing would be that out of naivete, or out of stupidity, or out of fear, you didn't know when to speak or you didn't know what to say," he told the Post. "What I ask from God is that He illuminate me so that I can do what I need to do."
