About Book

Henri J. M. Nouwen, from the Forward
Romero does not speak from a distance. He does not hide his fears, his brokenness, his hesitations. It is as if he puts his arm around my shoulder and slowly walks with me. He shares my struggles. There is a warmth in his words that opens my heart to listen.

Robert McAfee Brown, Professor Emeritus, Pacific School of Religion
These homilies reveal lines of poetic beauty describing a cruel and ugly world Here is indomitable courage and utter humility. Here is a message of hope.

Samuel Ruiz Garcia, Bishop of San Cristobal, Chiapas Mexico
Oscar Romero was converted by suffering: the suffering of a friend, of the people he served, and then finally his own suffering. There are many ways to be converted, but perhaps the best way is to live among the poor and to discover in them as Romero did, the presence of Christ.

Book Description
These selections from the sermons and writings of Archbishop Oscar Romero share the message of a great holy prophet of modern times. Three short years transformed Romero, archbishop of San Salvador, from a conservative defender of the status quo into one of the church’s most outspoken voices of the oppressed. Though silenced by an assassin’s bullet, his spirit—and the challenge of his life lives on.

The violence we preach is not the violence of the sword the violence of hatred It is the violence of love, of brotherhood, the violence that wills to beat weapons into sickles for work.

Oscar Romero, Novenber 27, 1977
