Drinking From Our Own Wells

Gustavo Gutierrez OP, born 1928

During my catholic years, when in despair about much of the mythological and regressive religious stuff I found, I would clutch – figuratively speaking, his book Aus der eigenen Quelle trinken, an academically sound clear-eyed and straight-forward spirituality of liberation. Once, some 20 years ago, I wanted to meet him when we were both in London and I nearly made it – but we missed each other. I had a kind telephone message from him instead. So glad to read just now that he is still around. He is, of course, much better known for his Theology of Liberation., which came out 50 years ago, in 1971. – Much gratitude.
