Go and read Sobrino

/ 16 March 2007

Well, this Pope’s congregation for the doctrine of the faith has issued its first “notification” concerning a theologian - and that gift goes to Jon Sobrino. I’m sure he doesn’t feel it is a gift at all, but given that many of us will now rush out to read his work, resulting in a wider audience, perhaps it is a gift in some ways. The blog to which I connect here wonders if perhaps Benedict’s larger target is liberation theology more generally. That would not be surprising, given his own leadership of the CDF under JPII. Sigh. I hope he keeps in mind that when people rise up to oppose you, it’s generally because you’re making a difference!
