In the mid 80’s I requested to enrol in a course on Liberation Theology in Peru with Fr. Gutierrez. My bishop (Bishop Eugene LaRocque) who was chaplain for an Organization named CIASP (Conference on Inter American Student Project) in the 60’s and early 70’s, didn’t blink an eye, and sent me off. Years later, when Bishop Paul-Andre succeeded Bishop LaRocque, I was fearful that this would be held against me. I remember the day when he called me in to get to know me, and I said something like this: “You probably won’t be impressed to know that I studied liberation theology with Gutierrez in Peru.” His response shocked, but relieved me: “I am absolutely impressed.”
In this context I recommend this LINK.
