(#Lent) Óscar Romero & life-sermons of Love

On 24 March 1980 Archbishop Óscar Romero was assassinated while celebrating Mass at the Divina Providencia Chapel in San Salvador. Receiving death threats a few weeks before his murder, he said: “Let it be known that it is no longer possible to kill the voice of justice.”

Today as we remember Saint Óscar Romero’s life of courageous faith and the love of Jesus Christ he shared (especially with the poor), may his voice continue to challenge our world toward justice, peace & love. On this Lenten Sunday, here are a few of his quotes…

“There are many things that can only be seen through eyes that have cried.” Saint Óscar Romero

“Like a voice crying in the desert, we must continually say ‘No’ to violence and ‘Yes’ to peace.” Saint Óscar Romero

“Let us not tire of preaching Love; it is the force that will overcome the world.” Saint Óscar Romero

grace, peace & life-sermons of love

    I watched a very touching movie about him before. Defending the faith until the end.

      I also saw a movie about his life eons ago – so much violence surrounded him, but he chose the path of peace, love & non-violent response. Blessings! ✨🌟💜🌟✨
