Saint Oscar Romero, Archbishop of El Salvador, Martyr

San Romero de las Américas


Of course I know it's the Feast of Oscar Romero, even though my Ordo Kalendar has Gabriel, Archangel instead of Romero today. I'm not going to write about him, although I consider him a very important saint, because two friends of the Dance Party have already written wonderful posts, which you must read. As one would expect, our friend Caminante has a powerful post here, and Jane Redmont, our new friend at Acts of Hope has a powerful post here. She also has a great photo of a mural of Oscar Romero.

Dios del amor, tu llamaste a tu siervo Oscar Romero para ser la voz de los pobres sin voz, y para entregar a su vida como semilla de liberación y un señal de la esperanza: da nos el valor, los que están inspirado por su sacrificio y el ejemplo de los mártires salvadoreños, para que podemos dar testimonio, sin temor, de tu Verbo, que está con nosotros, tu Verbo que es la Vida, Jesucristo nuestro hermano y Salvador. Amen

Yo, Dude, it's Jane Redmont, not Jane Roberts, but that's okay, I respond to "hey you" too ;-). And thanks for the referral to Caminante (and thanks, Caminante!)-- very powerful indeed.

Peace -- ¡con justicia!

No hay problema. We're all getting un poquito middle-aged.
