Quick Post

I know, I said I didn't have time to post anything, but I've got one assignment down and I took a little break to copy and paste this into blogger. (I actually stole this quote from my friend Phil Strahm's blog (here) while my blog is quiet, I highly recommend his! So go check him out!)
"When I feed the poor, they call me a saint. When I ask why the poor are poor, they call me a communist."

-Bishop Oscar Romero,

Oscar Romero was the guy who was shot in the 1980's for leading the liberation theology movement. I think he's a hero of the faith, really.

I first heard this quote from Dorthy Day.

Yeah! That's the guy!

And I just copied and paste it from his blog...so take the sourcing issue up with Phil!

btw I think Dorthy Day is a hero of the faith also!

I believe I got the quote out of one of Shane Claiborne's books...can't remember if it was Irresistible Revolution or Jesus 4 President.

Thanks for the link love...now back to my final paper for my fuller class I took at the NYWC! Almost finished!!!

If you like this quote (it is Romero), you should check out The Violence of Love, a collection of his homilies. It's a really good read to pick up from time to time.

Also, he ministered in El Salvador. He is certainly a hero of the faith, but he was only tied to the liberation theology movement because he called out the same atrocities. He did not preach 'liberation theology' which sought to transform the world by working within political systems and was condemned by the Catholic church. He was put on the road to sainthood and beatified by Pope JPII. He was actually theologically and politically conservative, associating himself with the Opus Dei movement and writing in support of the opening of founder Josemaria Escrivia's cause for beatification and canonization only a few months before his death.

What is most striking to me about Romero is his focus on the work of Christ on earth and the power of forgiveness and liberation it gives on earth for the victim and victimizer. For Romero, justice is rooted in the cross and in a holy transformation of lives. This has been my report on Oscar Romero.

If you continue to read his writings, you will be blessed. (And if it happens to cause a miracle, notify the Pope so that we can see Romero beatified!)
