Oscar Romero

For many years I have been inspired by the life of Oscar Romero, who lived the Gospel in the here-and-now:

“All practices that disagree with the gospel must be removed if we are to save people. We must save not the soul at the hour of death but the person living in history.”

In researching a unit of work so that my students might understand him better, I discovered a website that allows you to freely download a book of his writings entitled The Violence of Love. It is compelling and challenging reading. If you are interested, the link is here
