«DIGRESSION OF A LIBERAL PRIEST». THE NEW BOOK OF ARIEL S. LEVI di GUALDO IN THE NAME OF POLITICALLY INCORRECT, BUT ABOVE ALL OF KNOWING THE TRUTH THAT WILL SET US FREE
Better that certain facts and errors are highlighted by those who love and venerate the Church of Christ, instead of keeping quiet and waiting for his worst enemies to highlight them, accustomed to dealing with the truth with a completely different style and for very different purposes, otherwise those often irreparable disasters arise that end up imprinted on the pages of history to our perennial shame.
— Editorial news of the Editions The Island of Patmos —
God is by definition liberal because he created freedom and gave it to man together with free will. Freely gave His only begotten son Jesus Christ, who invited every man to practice his own freedom, basing their relationships on respect for the principles of fraternity and equality. The Word of God has also given us a command: «Give to Caesar what is Caesar's and to God what is God's» by making a clear separation between the political and religious spheres many centuries before the birth of the Enlightenment, Liberalism and the French Revolution with the tragic entry into action of its guillotines after summary trials celebrated farcically in the name of liberty, fraternity, egalitarian.
This book can also be read as a constructive sneer addressed to those clericals - much more numerous among lay Catholics than they are among clergymen and theologians - unable to understand what faith is, while convinced that they possess the true faith and can teach it and pass it on to others. Faith is a gift that can only be accepted and fully developed by authentic liberals, able to exercise with Faith and Reason the freedom of the children of a God who is the greatest liberal in the history of humanity generated by him, before time and beyond time.
With rigorously conducted historical work and entirely based on the sources, the Author has also made a critical analysis on the pontificates of the Holy Pontiffs Paul VI and John Paul II, both lived in socio-cultural and geopolitical contexts of extreme and delicate complexity. Well clarifying that the Saints, to whom to be proclaimed such heroic virtues are required and not perfection, they have not been free from errors. For this reason their historical figures can only be protected through the truth of the facts, not with those clerical manipulations through which it is thought that the dust can be swept under the rugs. On the contrary, precisely because of their supreme protection it is better that certain facts and errors are brought to light by those who love and venerate the Church of Christ, instead of keeping quiet and waiting for his worst enemies to highlight them, accustomed to dealing with the truth with a completely different style and for very different purposes, while the fearful clericals prepare a lavish meal for the wolves affirming with the cynicism that characterizes them: «Who makes me go looking for problems with such dangerous analyses? Those who come after will take care of solving them, I prefer to live a quiet life and enjoy the beautiful ecclesiastical career that I have built". Yup, the devastating career of the three legendary monkeys: I do not see, I can not hear, I do not talk. And all the while the House of God burns and our enemies fabricate the worst black legends on shreds of truth. But those who come after will think about it.
Precisely from this way of thinking and acting which contains within itself the perverse, then arise those often irreparable disasters that end up imprinted on the pages of history to our perennial shame.
