Virgilio Elizondo is widely acclaimed as the founder of U.S. Latino theology. But first and foremost he is a pastor who perceives in his peoples daily struggles the universal human quest for a sense of worth and belonging. Gods response to these longings is Jesus of Galilee, who shows us the way to reject the worlds rejection and oppose its destructive forces.
Elizondos work is more than just critical thinking about faith. It is a spiritual discernment that examines the human condition, judges it in light of the Gospels, and acts to transform whatever obscures our innate beauty as creatures made in Gods image. In these writings, Elizondo reflects on the personal journey behind his theology; on Jesus, Mary and Guadalupe; on the problem of sin and suffering; and on the way of discipleship.
Timothy Matovina is professor of theology at Notre Dame, where he is also director of the Cushwa Center for the Study of American Catholicism. He is co-author of San Fernando Cathedral, co-editor of ?Presente! and editor ofBeyond Borders: Writings of Virgilio Elizondo.
