Oscar Romero, a very special man from Latin America

An interesting article about Oscar Romero, a Bishop from El Salvador assassinated during El Salvador civil war. Read more about him and the blog article here. Let me share with you this enlightening extract from the article:
"So let’s keep celebrating the anniversary of Bishop Romero’s martyrdom, thus we recognize Christ among us.
”We have never preached violence, except the violence of love, which left Christ nailed to a cross, the violence that we must each do to ourselves, to overcome our selfishness and such cruel inequalities among us. 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 intosickles for work. November 27, 1977"
