"When liberation theology was in fashion among the neo-Marxist Catholic élite, the faithful did not convert en masse to their message"

They went over by the millions to the new Pentecostalist Churches, with their festive celebrations, music, singing, healings, speaking in tongues. But now this exodus has stopped. In the Catholic Church as well, the faithful are finding the warmth of participation and firmness of doctrine that three and four centuries ago brought success to the Reductions, the Jesuit missions among the Indians.
(Los van de weinig vruchtbare pausvoorspelling), interessant stuk van vaticanist Sandro Magister in L'Espresso (Engelse vertaling), over de situatie van de katholieke Kerk in de wereld. Eventjes weg uit de Utrechtse Nederlandse Westerse kokermentaliteit.
