Vatican paper highlights Gustavo Gutierrez

Catholic World News - September 04, 2013

L’Osservatore Romano has devoted new attention to the work of Father Gustavo Gutierrez, the Peruvian proponent of liberation theology. "With a Latin American Pope, liberation theology could not stay long in the shadows to which it has been relegated for some years, at least in Europe," wrote Father Ugo Sartorio in the Vatican newspaper.

Archbishop Gerhard Ludwig Müller, the prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, once studied under Father Gutierrez and has remained a friend and supporter of the Peruvian scholar.

    Once again, faithful Catholics have to wonder just what is going on here. We remember John Paul II waving his finger in admonishment at Ernesto Cardenal, another "liberation" theologian (and government minister in Nicaragua at that time); we remember that Benedict condemned central tenets of this theology; there are opinions all over the lot about Francis' attitude toward it. In a word, while liberation theology may be in the shadows, faithful Catholics are left in the dark about what to think.
