Abstract:This article addresses missiology as conceived by Latinas in the United States. The article is contextual in nature, focusing only in an intra-dialogue among Latinas. The missiologies of Ada María Isasi-Díaz and Cookie Rodríguez are analyzed through the prism of popular religion as forms of evangelization. Evangelization as constructed by Latinas is interlaced with how popular religion is manifested as the forger of community and as a resistance movement to the assimilation of the social, economic, political, and cultural values of a neo-liberal culture of consumption. The article concludes with a visionary strategy and call for an ecumenical pneumatology of evangelization from the Latina margins.
