Mexico Believers Fleeing Catholicism - Can the Pope's Visit Turn the Tide?

The Christian Broadcasting Network

February 12, 2016

Pope Francis is visiting Mexico, a country that has been a stronghold of Catholicism for centuries.  But a growing number of Mexicans are leaving the Catholic faith, and the pope is hoping to use his visit to convince them to stay faithful to the church.

In 1970, 96 percent of Mexicans claimed to be Catholic. According to a 2010 Mexican national census, that figure has dropped to less than 85 percent.

With a record number of people here now embracing evangelical Christianity, Pope Francis is hoping his visit will re-energize his flock and keep Mexicans faithful to the Catholic Church.
