Will Liberation Thelogy be Revived?
#6
I just looked up the John Paul II quote in the OP and it is from here (see par. 5):

Basically he says liberation theology is useful as long as it is consonant to the perennial doctrine of the Church found in the Fathers, Doctors, and Magisterium--especially socially teaching like Rerum Novarum (he specifically gives RN as an example). The question of course is whether it is consonant. Whenever I hear the phrase "Liberation Theology" it brings to mind a system that is not consonant with those things. I've read the cdf instruction and it basically lays out what is acceptable and what is not without accusing any particular persons or books, etc. It's the parts deemed unacceptable which I have always associated with the phrase "Liberation Theology." Here is that instruction if anyone is interested:
