Great Quote:

[The question here is not of political ideology, but why somebody would be accused of being a communist for simply asking why people are suffering? Perhaps the real issue is that people are translating the actions of a Christian through political and economic lenses.]

"When I give food to the poor, they call me a saint. When I ask why the poor have no food, they call me a communist.”

-Archbishop Dom Helder Camara

Have you read Oscar Romero, yet? He went through very similar things. His homilies are beautiful, convicting, and encouraging. Check it out.

Its a little expensive right now. Usually you can get it for $5+shipping (its $8+ right now).
