Fr. Jose Guadalupe Rivas was one of five priests killed in the last four years in Mexico, where murders have increased due to the presence of organized crime and drug traffickers.

The badly beaten body of a Mexican priest was discovered in Tecate, a town near the U.S.-Mexican border.

Fr. Jose Guadalupe Rivas, 58, was pastor of Saint Jude Thaddeus parish in Tecate, and ran Our Lady of Guadalupe Migrant House. He was a member of the Catholic Charismatic Renewal Movement of the Archdiocese of Tijuana.
