THIS is the true story of a Catholic ministry in one of the most violent places on earth: the Anapra barrio in Juarez, Mexico.
The account that opens the book is almost cinematic: a priest sits in his barebones home in the dead of night, hearing a group of unknown invaders go door to door, demanding his location. At best these men will use the priest to rob the parish church, then beat him. But it is more likely they will kill him.
