A Revolution of Christ’s Love

A revolution motivated by the power of love instead of arms, a revolution that seeks not the overthrow but the conversion of society: This became Romero’s focus during his final three years as archbishop of San Salvador. For the ruling elite, conversion meant the softening of their stony hearts and an embrace of the biblical truth that all people are equally beloved by God and equally deserving of the world’s resources. For the campesinos, conversion meant an awareness that their misery was not the will of God, that Christ suffered along with them, and that the Gospel could empower and liberate them. For the Church, conversion meant being a source of material and spiritual hope for the hungry, thirsty, forlorn, naked, sick, and oppressed.
