Originally published on the twentieth anniversary of his death, this volume celebrates the life, spirit and legacy of Oscar Romero, the martyred archbishop of San Salvador.
"It is an extraordinary privilege to read this account of Oscar Romero because it reveals his deep inner spirit. To know him in this way becomes a call to find the face of God in the poor as he did and to live the way of gospel love, whatever the cost. Romero is truely a 'spiritual master' of this century." --Bishop Thomas J. Gumbleton
"The word of Monsenor Romero is, like the truth and because it is true, 'always old and always new,' as St. Augustine said. Today as much as yesterday, that word keeps casting light on the reality of our world, unmasking lies, demanding justice and conversion. With martyrs like this there is hope for humanity. It is that, so beautifully, that this book shows us." --Jon Sobrino, S.J.
