(p.74) Chapter five Crisis
The Prophet of Cuernavaca

Todd Hartch

Oxford University Press

The Vatican discovered that Ivan Illich was sabotaging the missionary initiative in Latin America and called him to Rome for a heresy trial in 1968. This questions at the trial were extremely varied and did not seem to be based on any specific evidence. Illich believed that the questions were so unfair to him that they were a source of scandal for the Church. He became convinced that his priestly ministry would continue to cause controversy as long as he ran the Cuernavaca center. He therefore left the active priesthood and became a social critic.
