After Padre de Jesus' arrest, his replacement, Padre Gabriel gives a revolutionary sermon. 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.
