Restoring Hope

Archbishop Oscar Romero`s vision for a just world (in his own words)

Living in hope, Archbishop Romero engendered hope in the people he served. Sustained by Christian hope, he gave hope to many, especially those treated as non-persons. Practicing hope, he revealed that there is always room for a better world although warning about false messianisms. 

The one who lived by Christian hope and inspired hope in others paid the ultimate price: death… a violent death. He joined the countless martyrs throughout history who suffered the consequences of daring to live with hope and inspire hope in others. Yet in death he continues to inspire many. His message remains as relevant as ever because hope does not end until fully achieving its goal. As long as we need to long for a world in which injustice, marginalization and violence are no more, Archbishop Romero’s message of hope will remain alive.

In this book we encounter an exquisite selection of Archbishop Romero’s own words about hope. These quotes come directly from the homilies he preached since the time he was appointed as Archbishop of San Salvador until the day of his untimely death. Each quote is an invitation into the heart and mind of someone who lived with a profound sense of Christian hope. Reading and reflecting upon these words is an invitation into a journey of Restoring Hope.
