The ideas presented by New Mexico novelist-writer Demetria Martínez in her collection of columns, Confessions of a Berlitz-tape Chicana, explore how she espouses and represents Latino Catholicism, applied as a practice rooted in indigenous culture merged with Catholic imagery during the colonial era. Her writing and stances indicate that Latino Catholicism is built on principles of community and social justice. Critical commentary is drawn from Chicana/o writers and recent texts on Mexican-American spirituality.
