"Voice of the Voiceless"

15 August 1917- 24 March 1980

Oscar Romero "Saint of the Poor"

Archbishop of El Salvador


The promise that Oscar Romero promised was that life, not death, would have the last word. He said, " I do not believe in death without resurrection. If they kill me, i will be resurrected in the Salvadoran people."



From the Bible= Leviticus 19:15: " Do not pervert justice; do not show partiality to the poor or favoritism to the great, but judge you neighbor fairly."

Oscar Romero

Oscar Romero once said...

"You say that you are Christian. If you are really Christian, please stop sending military aid to the military here, because they use it only to kill my people."



"Peace is not the product of terror or fear. Peace is not the silence of cemeteries. Peace is not the silent result of violent repression. Peace is the generous, tranquil contribution of all to the good of all. Peace is dynamism. Peace is generosity. It is right and it is duty."
