The Movement of Priests for the Third World (MSTM) was created in Argentina in 1967 as a result of the priests’ embrace of the “Manifest of the 18 bishops for the Third World”, subscribed by the bishops of several countries in all five continents, which urges the oppressed peoples in the Third World to “raise their heads and stand on their feet” in their struggle for liberation.  In this article, we analyse the “Christmas Commitment”, a document that accompanied the fasting of the priests during the 1968 Christmas Eve. As a result of the spreading of this article, the Movement became publicly known.
