No, the Maryknoll Sandinista priest Miguel d'Escoto Brockmann, 81, who had his suspension a divinis -- first decreed by Pope John Paul II -- removed by Pope Francis in the past few weeks did not leave his absurd statements and government positions behind, as one might gather from various news reports of the past couple of days that repeated his statements from many years ago.
He repeated such statements yesterday on Nicaraguan television, and now on a whole new unheard-of level.
For those who are unaware of its real meaning in practice and behind the theological fog, this is Liberation Theology. This is it:
MANAGUA - EFE - The priest and former Nicaraguan foreign secretary Miguel d´Escoto Brockmann said today [Tuesday] that Cuban leader Fidel Castro is a chosen man of God to convey the message of the Holy Spirit in Latin America."The Vatican may silence everyone, then God will make the stones speak, and may the stones spread his message, but He didn't do this, He chose the greatest Latin-American of all time: Fidel Castro," the religious, 81 years old, declared today to Channel 4 in the local [Nicaraguan] television.
D'Escoto Brockmann, current director for border issues and international relations of the Government of the President of Nicaragua, the Sandinista Daniel Ortega, made these declarations the day following that on which the Vatican made public the papal decision to lift the "suspension a divinis" that Pope John Paul II had imposed on him."It is through Fidel Castro that the Holy Spirit sends us the message. This message of Jesus, of the need to struggle to establish, firmly and irreversibly, the kingdom of God on this earth, which is his alternative to the empire," he added.Moreover, the also former president of the UN General Assembly revealed that the lifting of his punishment took place thanks to the support of the Apostolic Nuncio in Nicaragua, Fortunatus Nwachukwu, who advised him to write a letter to Pope Francis to ask for the end of the suspension.The priest reiterated that his joy is to be able to preside over his first Eucharist in Spanish, since up to the middle of the past century it was done in Latin, and afterwards he celebrated them in English.
