This week marked the anniversary of the assassination of Oscar Romero (24 March 1980).
In remembrance of his life, we have picked a few of the best Oscar Romero books as a sort of introductory reading guide to his life and work.
These selections from the sermons and writings of Archbishop Oscar Romero share the message of a great holy prophet of modern times. Three short years transformed Romero, archbishop of San Salvador, from a conservative defender of the status quo into one of the church’s most outspoken voices of the oppressed. Though silenced by an assassin’s bullet, his spirit and the challenge of his life lives on.
