Oscar Romero and the Communion of the SaintsJohn Irvine, via The Good Book Stall
It is thirty years since the assassination, while he was saying mass, of Oscar Romero, the Archbishop of San Salvador. He was giving a homily at the time on the subject of human dignity. That same year thousands of peasants were killed by the death squads of the brutal military dictatorship. Romero spent his whole life among the poor, fighting for their rights, alleviating when he could the hunger, disease and violence which was their common lot. For many years El Salvador was controlled by a heartless capitalist regime supported by a military trained, it must be said, in the United States. Romero spoke out constantly against the government repression, appealing for basic human rights and social justice. He became the voice of the voiceless, the conscience of his people. His case for canonisation is being considered by the Vatican. Anyone who reads this book will have no doubt as to his saintliness.
