Cardinal Gianfranco Ravasi produced a scandal when he participated in a Pachamama celebration. At the time, a video was uploaded on Gloria.tv several times generating about 20k clicks.
The Pachamama Synod shows that this was not an isolated incident. In the video below, Ravasi walks around a blanket honouring "Mother Earth" (Pachamama) and "Father Sun" (Tata Inti).
The celebration was led by a shaman and happened in San Marcos Sierras, Argentina. It was part of Ravasi's so called “Courtyard of the Gentiles,” a program fostering "dialogue" with atheists.
In this act of apostasy also participated the apostate priest Javier Olivera and the apostate nun Theresa Varela.
