What a great find.

I was not aware of the Romero Institute. I wondered if it were named for the murdered cleric, and checked to see. It is.

Even though Romero didn’t openly embrace the movement, his defense of the poor and criticisms of the Salvadoran government dovetailed with liberation theology’s aims. He was murdered the day after he told a peasant army the they were murdering their brethren.

A little known fact about Romero is that he had ties to Opus Dei. Don't know what to make of that.

When I read about Romero and other martyr priests that saw against the Vatican tide, I am reminded of the words of Dom Helder Camara:

“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.”
