Vatican Amnesty For Red Suspended Priest

MARYKNOLL, N.Y., Aug. 1, 2014 /Christian Newswire/ -- The Vatican has issued a decree that lifts its 29-year suspension on Father Miguel F. d'Escoto Brockmann, a Maryknoll priest. The Maryknoll Fathers and Brothers is the mission society of the U.S. Catholic Church.

Father d'Escoto, 81, was ordained a Roman Catholic priest on June 10, 1961. He helped found Orbis Books, the theological publication division of Maryknoll, and he was an official with the World Council of Churches. During the 1970s, Father d'Escoto became engaged in politics in Nicaragua. He joined the Sandinista National Liberation Front, a political party that overthrew Anastasio Somoza Debayle and established a revolutionary government.

For his political actions, involvement in the Sandinista government and failing to resign from a political office (Nicaragua foreign minister) held in violation of his ministry, Father d'Escoto was suspended from his priestly duties by the Vatican.

This current pontificate of pope Francis grows daily ever more repellent and superficial.

It is now, inter alia ,seemingly governed by a type of spiritual nepotism that promotes deviant clerics in accordance with their commitment to to the false doctrines of so called 'liberation theology".

Since the election of this ignorant pope it looks like "sauve qui peut" [every man for himself] as the deep truths and consolidated discipline of catholicism are cast aside in the pursuit of a monomaniacal obsession with the false idea that poverty equals sanctity.
