Jesuit General Sosa Signed a Hymn of Praise to Fidel Castro in 1989

In 1989, Sosa signed a manifesto, that Fidel Castro be celebrated as a hero
(Havana) The life of Arturo Sosa Abascal, the 31st Father General of the Jesuit Order reigning since October 2016, reads like a Marxist. In the late seventies, in the high bloom of liberation theology, he dealt with the question of how Christian faith could be mediated Marxistically. Many years later, he joined the circle of convinced Castro followers. This is the result of a declaration of solidarity, which was signed by the now "Black Pope".

"Unprecedented victory over tyranny, corruption and vassalism"

In 1989, 911 Venezuelan intellectuals and artists published a Manifiesto de Bienvenida a Fidel Castro , in which they welcomed the visit of Fidel Castro, the communist dictator of Cuba, and celebrated it as the "leader of the Cuban Revolution".
"We want to pay public respect for what you have achieved for the dignity of your people and for the whole of Latin America"
Says the statement.
"In this dramatic hour for the continent, only ideological blindness can deny the place you occupy in the history of the liberation of our peoples. 30 years ago, you came to Venezuela immediately after the exemplary victory over tyranny, corruption and vassalage. At that time, you were received by our people, as only a hero who embodies and symbolizes the collective ideal could."

Fidel Castro already visited Venezuela in the late 1950s

The signatories assured Fidel Castro, "for the same reasons today," to express their affection associated with "the hope" of building a "just, independent and solidarity Latin America". The persecution of the Church by the Cuban regime obviously did not touch the Jesuit Sosa.With this attitude, he was not alone among progressive Catholics. Christians who are not left are not true Christians, but reactionaries who deserve to be persecuted. Thus, the Swiss Capuchin Walbert Bühlmann formulated it in 1986 and thereby meant the Christian persecution of the Cuban supported Marxist regimes of Angola and Mozambique.
Father Arturo Sosa appears as the 811th signatory to the Declaration, which he signed as Director of the Centro Gumilla ( de Investigacion y Accion Social ). He also published his essay "La mediacion marxista de la Fe cristiana" (The Marxist mediation of the Christian faith) in the SIC of the Centro, which he directed from 1979-1996. Seven years after the praise of Fidel Castro, Sosa became Provincial Provincial of the Jesuit Province of Venezuela in 1996.
"The story is history, you can not deny," wrote the Spanish columnist Francisco Fernandez de la Cigoña. For people can change over the years. What matters is where they are. The praise to Fidel Castro could however at best be considered a very late "sin of youth," since Sosa was already 41 years old at that time.

The past has passed: what if the now is even more serious?

Fidel Castro is dead, his brother Raul still dominates Cuba with a Marxist fist, while Sosa's homeland Venezuela is in a serious crisis. The "bolivarian" Maduro regime, with whom communist Cuba is closely aligned, shoots protesters.
More serious than the Marxist and real socialist aberrations of the Jesuit generation in the past are some doubtful statements today. At the very least, his assertion that Japan can only be evangelized in cooperation with Buddhism and Shintoism (see also the discernment between spirits ) is misleading . A comment in an interview with the Swiss journalist Giuseppe Rusconi brought a charge of heresy  against Sosa. The Father General of the Jesuits questioned nothing but the validity of Jesus' words. In order to justify the admission of remarried divorced to the sacraments and the softening of the sacraments of the Church as they read out parts of the Church from the post-synodal letter Amoris laetitia, calling on Pope Francis, Sosa questioned the infallibility of Jesus. At that time nobody had a tape recorder to record the words.
The case is pending with the Congregation of the Faith, which is now faced with the unusual task of judging a Superior General of the Jesuit Order. However, the situation in the history of the Church and the Order is not entirely new.

What is the Origin of the Hammer and Sickle Crucifix? -- Marxist Jesuit

(La Paz) Evo Morales gave a gift that was as tasteless as it was blasphemous to the Pope on Wednesday.  What is it about the hammer and sickle and the Crucified One, which   Pope Francis will take back to Rome?
The communist symbol of sickle and hammer with the crucified body is the "symbiosis" of "social commitment and Christianity" and was a "tribute" to the Spanish priest Luis Espinal, who had distinguished himself through his "commitment to social struggle". "Morales probably meant Socialism and Christianity '" said Infovaticana .
The newly created icon was placed around Pope Francis' neck as a pendant (see picture).

The Jesuit and Marxist Luis Espinal Camps

Luis Espinal Camps was a Spanish Jesuit and Marxist, who was murdered in 1980 in Bolivia.
Born in 1932 in Catalonia, he joined the Society of Jesus in 1949, was ordained in Barcelona in 1962, in 1963 gained his licentiate in theology and after that attended  a course in journalism and audiovisual media at the Catholic University of Milan in Italy. The Jesuit was described as a gifted communicator.
Under the influence of socio-political left movement in Latin America, he went in 1968 at his own request to Bolivia. It was the time that  left and right engaged in a military struggle for power   in Bolivia, where communist guerrilla groups had been formed in the country and Che Guevara, who had arrived with Cuban guerrillas and Soviet support to enforce the armed revolution, had just been killed by the military.
Unlike other Latin American countries the left and right  took turns in Bolivia exercising  the government inscrutably in a fast rhythm.

Fight on the side of left movements

Espinal at a rally of miners unions and students 1979
Fr. Espinal, who considered himself a "worker priest" remained in the capital, La Paz, where he lived in a poor neighborhood with two other Jesuits. He worked as a theater critic for the daily newspaper Presencia and initially designed his own show on national television, in which he reported on the "worker priests" and took interviews with members of the Marxist guerrilla movement Ejército de Liberación Nacional (ELN). In 1971 he was awarded Bolivian citizenship. From that year until his death he was a member of the Jesuit radio station Radio Fides and chief editor of the weekly newspaper he founded, Aquí as a mouthpiece left "popular movements". He supported the miners' movement, founded in 1976 the human rights organization, Asamblea de Derechos Humanos and joined a public hunger strike in 1977 with the demand for democratization.
Luis Espinal was one of a number of Jesuits and got closer to various forms of Marxism. Unlike his brothers he did not go over to armed struggle.
When the Leftist Nationalist, Lidia Gueiler Tejada from the interim Revolutionary Nationalist Movement of Bolivia, was the President of the Republic, Espinal was abducted and murdered on March 21, 1980. Whether the offenders were sent by the drug cartels that soon afterwards supported the dictatorship of Luis García Meza Tejada, or from one of the various rapidly changing, and disempowered military rulers could never be clarified. Espinal followers see the reason in his public criticism of an amnesty for crimes during the tenure of President Banzer.
During the Pope's visit it has been repeatedly pointed out that Espinal was assassinated just two days before Archbishop Oscar Arnulfo Romero. An attempt to put the Jesuit into a new line of geopolitical saints.

State-honored Christian-Marxist "Folk Hero"

 Hammer, Sickle and crucified, "Socialism and Christianity" on a chain that  was placed around Pope Francis' neck.
In 2007 President Evo Morales declared March 21 the "Day of the Bolivian Cinema" in memory of the assassination of Luis Espinal. Pope Francis prayed today in the place where Fr. Espinal was murdered. Here the Catholic Church's  leader said:
"Good evening, dear sisters and brothers,
I have come to a halt in order to greet you, and especially to remember. At that resembles those a friend, one of our brothers, a victims of interests, that did not want him to fight for the freedom of Bolivia. Fr. Espinal has preached the Gospel and this gospel bothered, and that's why they eliminated him. We hold a minute's silence in prayer and then we pray all together.
[Silence] "
President Morales declared to Pope Francis that the scandalous gift that he made to the head of the church is  a "memento" of Luis Espinal,  who was "known for his religious beliefs and stood up for the defense of the poor, the marginalized and the sick."
However, Father Luis Espinal received sharp criticism during his time in Bolivia mainly by the Church's sharp criticism and his sympathy for the revolutionary, Marxist movements. The weekly newspaper he founded in 1979, Aquí celebrated him today as a "martyr", "folk hero" and "symbol" of liberation theology . For his followers, and thus  is he honored by the presidency of the left-wing populist Evo Morales as well as official Bolivia, Luis Espinal is a leftist symbol in the fight against a flexibly defined "rights".
Several organizations presented Pope Francis a letter in which they expressed their desire for the beatification of Luis Espinal.

Update: apparently, the Pope wasn't angry and didn't say, "no, this is wrong" or variations on that.  Thank you Father Lombardi.  Catholic Snooze Service tries to downplay Espinal's obvious Marxism, and gets it wrong.  Bolivia was ruled by a Leftist President at the time Espinal was dealt with.

The Neocons trying to play damage control were also wrong.

Jesuit Marxist Friend of Tom Merton, Gives Talk at Jesuit University

Editor: Merton talks about his friend "Ernesto Cardenal" when the later stayed at Gethsemeni as a Novice in 1957 and left for health reasons in 58. Guilty by association? Birds of a feather, I say.

[Ten Reasons Blog] You really can't make this stuff up. Ernesto Cardenal, the Jesuit Marxist liberation theologian who served in the violent Marxist-Leninist Sandinista government of Daniel Ortega in Nicaragua during the 1980s, is visiting Xavier University. Cardenal was captured in a now famous photograph asking for Pope John Paul II's blessing as the Holy Father arrived in Managua in 1983 and instead got a stern reprimand. He was later suspended from the priesthood. Details of his visit are available on the always curious Xavier University activities calendar:
Father Ernesto Cardenal, one of the greatest living poets from Latin America, is a priest from Nicaragua. He was an active member of the Sandinista movement. As minister of culture he was also one of three priests to hold a position in the Sandinista government. The Academic Service Learning Semesters and Voices of Solidarity will be hosting a bilingual poetry reading to introduce Fr. Cardenal's latest book: The Origin of Species and Other Poems. The event will take place in the afternoon.
