The Rise of Charismatic Catholicism in Latin America

Latin America's other large country, besides Brazil, a growing power in world trade, especially as a producer of oil, also enjoyed a great expansion of the Catholic Charismatic Renewal within its borders. This country is of course Mexico. Despite the relatively small percentage of evangelicals in Mexico, Mexican Catholics felt themselves under siege from them, as well as from Pentecostals, Mormons, and traditional indigenous religions, during most of the twentieth century and the start of the twenty-first century. But despite the numbers and resources of many Protestant missionaries, Mexican Catholics mostly managed to hold their own; that is, in spite of numerous newspaper reports in the United States of Catholic losses, especially in rural areas, the census data on religion in Mexico has shown little change in terms of membership. The Mexican Catholic Charismatic Renewal became a socioreligious laboratory that is remarkable for several findings, which are discussed in this chapter.
