To satisfy the Portuguese wish to enlarge their empire. To satisfy the Spanish desire...The Mission • 1986
This seeking to create a paradise on earth... how easily it offends. Your Holiness is offended. Because it may distract from that paradise which comes hereafter. The Spanish and Portuguese kings are offended... because a paradise of the poor is seldom pleasing to those who rule. And the Settlers here are offended for the same reason. So it was this burden I Carried to South America: To satisfy the Portuguese wish to enlarge their empire. To satisfy the Spanish desire that this would do them no harm... to satisfy Your Holiness... that these monarchs would threaten no more the power of the Church... and to ensure for you all... that the Jesuits here could no longer deny you these satisfactions.
