A Prophetic Bishop Speaks to His People: Volume 1: The Complete Homilies of Oscar Romero
A Prophetic Bishop Speaks to His People: The Complete Homilies of Oscar Romero Volume 1
Romero, Oscar Arnulfo
[Paper Back]

From the time Oscar Arnulfo Romero was named archbishop of San Salvador on February 22, 1977 until he was murdered at the altar on March 24, 1980, he delivered 193 homilies that were broadcast to the nation by radio. These homilies were later transcribed and published in six volumes in El Salvador and are now being offered in print for the first time in English. The homilies are the impassioned voice of a prophetic pastor addressing his people and his nation at a time of unprecedented crisis and violence. The homilies offer an unsparing indictment of the harsh political reality of El Salvador but persistently summon Salvadorans to respond courageously to the Gospel mandates of peace, love, and social equality. Presented in a style suitable for both specialists and the general readership, the present volume is an English translation of the first 46 homilies, delivered between March 14 and November 25, 1977. They correspond to the first volume of the original Spanish edition and to Cycle C of the church’s liturgy.
