The future of history belongs to the poor and exploited.

Gutierrez Gustavo
The building of a just society means overcoming every obstacle to the creation of authentic peace.

Gustavo Gutierrez
Through the persons who explicitly accept his Word, the Lord reveals the world to itself.

Human history is in truth nothing but the history of the slow, uncertain, and surprising fulfillment of the Promise.
Gutierrez

Gustavo Gutierrez
As we progress, various shades of meaning and deeper levels of understanding will complement this initial effort.




Gustavo Gutierrez quotes
Although until recently the Church was closely linked to the established order, it is beginning to take a different attitude regarding the exploitation, oppression, and alienation which prevails in Latin America. This has caused concern among the beneficiaries and defenders of capitalist society, who no longer can depend on what used to be - whether consciously or unconsciously - one of their mainstays.
Gustavo Gutierrez
To hope does not mean to know the future, but rather to be open, in an attitude of spiritual childhood, to accepting it as a gift.
Gutierrez quotes
Christendom is not primarily a mental construct. It is above all a fact, indeed the longest historical experience the Church has had. Hence the deep impact it has made on its life and thought.
Gutierrez Gustavo
Reason has, especially today, many other manifestations than philosophical ones.
