Through the Year With Oscar Romero
John Sentamu and Irene Hodgson
'Oscar Romero of San Salvador, archbishop and martyr, allowed the message of the Gospel deep into himself and let it take root in his life. That Gospel of God's love for all, love especially for the poor and the dispossessed, gave him grace to be a true and faithful pastor: one who listened to the needs of his people ... Romero's words are words springing out of a life lived in the pattern of Jesus Christ. They led him to a death like Christ's. And so they proclaim the God of life who will make all things new, at great cost to himself!'
Archbishop Oscar Romero was assassinated on 24 March 1980 while celebrating the Eucharist. In these powerful and moving selections from his broadcast talks Romero invites us each day to move into the 'intimate space' of our conscience, to encounter ourselves there, and then to go out to create a more just world.
