The Vatican has censured the writings of Father Jon Sabrino, a Roman Catholic priest in El Salvador known for his previous advocacy of liberation theology.

The Vatican now finds fault with writings that could be seen as questioning the divinity of Christ.

John Allen, Vatican correspondent for The National Catholic Reporter, speaks with Jacki Lyden about Father Sobrino, and about Pope Benedict's upcoming visit to Latin America.
