Oscar Romero

Artist: 
Julie Lonneman

Artist's Narrative:
"Those who surrender to the service of the poor through love of Christ, will live like the grains of wheat that dies. It only apparently dies. If it were not to die, it would remain a solitary grain. The harvest comes because of the grain that dies. We know that every effort to improve society, above all when society is so full of injustice and sin, is an effort that God blesses; that God wants; that God demands of us."
—Archbishop Oscar Romero, from the homily he gave a few minutes before his assassination while presiding at liturgy

El Salvador, 1917-1980
