Ever wonder why Papa Che has been so friendly with the Castro dynasty?
No need to do much searching.
Many Catholic clerics in Latin America have been infected by the Marxist virus known as “Liberation Theology,” which was cooked up in the ideological warfare laboratories of the KGB in the 1970’s.
Liberation Theology holy cards often depicted Jesus as a revolutionary equipped with Soviet firearms.
For a quick introduction to the link between Liberation Theology and the Soviet Union’s KGB, go HERE for a brilliant thumbnail summary by Jose Azel.
Among the clergy most deeply infected by this virus –sadly — those in the Society of Jesus rank very high in numbers, especially in Latin America.
The Society of Jesus, also known as the Jesuits, is the religious order to which Papa Che belongs.
His public relationship with Liberation Theology was somewhat ambivalent before he was elected pope, but his obvious predilection for Marxist Latin American dictators, his praise for them, and his constant condemnations of capitalism, have let the world know — without a doubt — that he, too, has been infected by that heinous and heretical virus.
So, the payoff is this: Many Latin American Jesuits have been fond of the Castro dynasty for a long time, and proud of the fact that Fidel and Raul attended Jesuit schools in Cuba (even though Jesuits back then had nothing but extreme contempt for Marxism).
No wonder, then, that this story has now surfaced about the current Jesuit Superior General — Venezuelan Arturo Sosa Abascal — having praised Fidel in 1989.
There are many, many others like him, unfortunately, still, to this very day, despite all the horrors wreaked on humanity by Marxism and by tyrants such as Fidel and Raul Castro.
St. Ignatius Loyola, the founder of the Jesuits, would have been horrified by all this. As Superior General, Father Sosa is a direct successor to St. Ignatius.
St. Ignatius had the “gift of tears,” a physical condition affecting some mystics that makes them weep uncontrollably.
Perhaps a vision of today’s Jesuits was involved in his frequent weeping?
Jesus H. Whip-Wielding Christ….. how did we get here?
From The Catholic Herald
Jesuit superior general Fr Arturo Sosa allegedly signed a letter praising Cuban dictator Fidel Castro in 1989.
The 810th name on the list of signatories is “Arturo Sosa, S.J.,” of the Centro Gumilla, of which he was director at the time.
The letter begins: “We… wish to publicly express our respect for what you, as the main leader of the Cuban Revolution, have achieved for the dignity of your people and therefore for all Latin America.”
It goes on to say that “only ideological blindness can deny the place the process you represent occupies in the history of the liberation of our peoples.”
The letter also describes Castro’s overthrow of the Batista government as an “exemplary victory over tyranny, corruption and servitude”, with the signatories pledging to use him as an example in their hope of creating a “just, independent” Latin America.
Castro’s regime brutally suppressed the Catholic Church after seizing power in 1959, nationalising Church schools, censoring publications and expelling priests.
It was only in the 1990s, some years after the letter was signed, that the Cuban government began relaxing restrictions on the Church.
Fr Sosa was elected 31st superior general of the Jesuits in October last year, succeeding Fr Adolfo Nicolas.
Observers have regarded him as being very left wing in the past, with the Centro Gumilla adopting a stance close to Liberation Theology. However, he later became disillusioned with the regime of late Venezuelan president Hugo Chavez.
