At church the next Sunday, Padre Gabriel, the replacement after Padre de Jesus was arrested, gives a revolutionary sermon. The government does not like this. The church as an institution has "thrown in its lot with the people," and the SIM is noticing. The next Sunday, prostitutes attend mass and disrupt it; the next week, the contents of latrines are dumped in the confessional before Sunday morning.
