Biography

Mexican-American Roman Catholic priest and community activist, who was also a leading scholar of Liberation and Hispanic theology. He was widely regarded as "the father of U.S. Latino religious thought." Elizondo was the founder of the Pastoral Institute at the University of the Incarnate Word. He was also a co-founder of the Mexican-American Cultural Center, a think tank for scholars and religious leaders to develop pastoral ministry and theology from a Hispanic perspective. He was well known for his 1983 book, Galilean Journey: The Mexican-American Promise, which examined the similarities between Jesus' Galilean background and the mestizo experience.

Elizondo's body was found at his home on 14 March 2016. He had shot himself in the head. He had been accused of child abuse allegedly committed in 1983 which he vigorously denied.
