Jon Sobrino – A Distabilising Prayer

Catholic liberation theologian Jon Sobrino

My friend and colleague Tadeusz Mich mentioned a number of times a really destabilising prayer that his former professor, Jon Sobrino, used to utter at the beginning of the school year, to the dismay of his students. An incredibly creative way of birthing  interest in those who expected to hear something totally different. Finally, I have decided to share it with you.

How would you react if your theology professor would pray like this?

Oh, God, if you really exist,
Save my soul, if I have one.
