The Archbishop of Lima has criticised the Prefect of the Congregation for the Faith again, for opening up to liberation theologian Gustavo Gutiérrez : “He must defend the sound doctrine, don’t be naive”

Cardinal Juan Luis Cipriani has criticised the Prefect of the Congregation for the Faith, Gerhard Ludwig Müller for opening up to Liberation Theology. Müller, whom Benedict XVI nominated leader of the Congregation in 2012, is the co-author – alongside liberation theologian Gustavo Gutiérrez – of the book “Dalla parte dei poveri. Teologia della liberazione, teologia della Chiesa” (“On the Side of the Poor: Liberation Theology, Theology of the Church”), a recent Italian edition of a book they wrote in German in 2004. A great deal was written about the book in the columns of Vatican daily L’Osservatore Romano. Gutiérrez met with Pope Francis last September.

Cipriani is Archbishop of Lima and the first cardinal to head a diocese belonging to the Opus Dei. He had already criticised the Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith once a week or so ago about his stance towards Liberation Theology.
