John D. Early

University Press of Florida

This chapter describes examples of liberation priests involved in various community efforts that empowered the Maya to confront their crisis, especially by literacy, health, or cooperative programs. These efforts led to a conversion experience that changed their worldviews of Catholicism. An appendix explains a typology of the reactions of Catholic priests when confronted by pressures for social change both within the church and from the larger society. Its categories are value-change, value nonchange, interest-change, interest nonchange.

Keywords:   empowerment priests, literacy programs, health programs, cooperatives, conversion experience, typology of priests
