Deep Roots Podcast: Ernesto Cardenal, Revolutionary Priest

Deep Roots Podcast: Ernesto Cardenal, Revolutionary Priest February 19, 2018

In this episode, we examine Ernesto Cardenal. Cardenal is a liberation theologian who refuses to be contained by a lectern. A priest who refused to be restrained by the pulpit. He is a poet that refuses to let words be his only medium. For him, revolution isn’t a metaphor, it is a painful act that brought death to friends and enemies. But, to Cardenal, such death was the price for the promise of liberation.
