A Communist Pope. An interview with author George Neumayr[Gloria,tv] Maike Hickson: You report that, while in Argentina as a younger priest, then-Father Bergoglio was close to the Jesuit General Superior, Fr. Pedro Arrupe who himself opened up the Jesuit Order to socialist ideas. Could you explain this thesis a little more?
George Neumayr: He was a protege of Arrupe, who identified Bergoglio as a rising liberal star in the order. That is why he made him a provincial at the age of 36. Arrupe presided over the order during its most intense period of liberalization and used Bergoglio as a liberal enforcer at the infamous worldwide gathering of Jesuits in 1975 that sealed the order's socialist and modernist direction.
Edit: we also came to a similar conclusion, Bergoglio Praises Arrupe, with help from Katholisches.info. Lol, why can’t we catch malaria?
