Archbishop Romero by Reverend Robert Pelton

Book Description

In the spring of 2005, scholars from throughout the Americas gathered at the University of Notre Dame to commemorate the twenty-fifth anniversary of the assassination of Archbishop Oscar Romero of El Salvador, and to reflect on the meaning of his life for the Catholic Church. As the collected essays in "Oscar Romero" demonstrate, the Archbishop s formal title may have given him ecclesiastical authority, buthis actions made hima real leader for the people of El Salvador. Romero exemplified the characteristics of an Old Testament prophet, speaking out against the injustice inflicted on the poor by the Salvadoran authorities. In the end, he became a martyr, murdered by those he dared to oppose. But his life, chronicled here, continues to bear witness to powerful truths. Anyone interested in a deeper understanding of this "voice for the voiceless" and his place within the Catholic Church will benefit from this book. "
