CWN Editor's Note: The Guadalupe Missionaries (mentioned in this article) were founded in Mexico in 1949. “Other priests before me,” said one priest, “have spread the Gospel, without knowing if they would succeed in touching the hearts of people. I baptize them now. It can take 20 or 30 years; only God knows.” Another priest said, “It is beautiful to observe them reading the Gospel for the first time and hear them say, ‘For so many years, I have sought this very thing.’”
