The Theological Legacy of Oscar Romero
Michael Lee traces the astonishing journey of Oscar Romero from pious seminarian to courageous Vatican II archbishop of the crucified people of El Salvador. In Lee's telling, Romero shines forth as a model for the revolutionary rediscovery of God's preferential option for the poor, wherein "He has brought down the powerful from their thrones, and lifted up the lowly" (Lk 1:52)
The prophetic archbishop of San Salvador, Oscar Romero was assassinated while celebrating Mass. He was canonized in 2018.
