The legacy of the liberation theology in Guatemala is complex. Although it mobilized progressive Catholic forces at times, it has not overcome reactionary and conservative church elements. Most importantly, it has not proven entirely capable of rising above elitism, nor has it moved beyond paternalism toward Maya culture. La théologie de la libération a laissé au Guatemala un héritage complexe. Si en certaines occasions, elle a été en mesure de mobiliser les forces catholiques progressistes, en revanche, elle n'a pas réussi à surmonter le courant réactionnaire et conservateur de l'Église. Qui plus est, elle s'est avérée incapable de se détacher entièrement des élites ou de rompre avec une attitude paternaliste à l'égard de la culture maya.
