Abstract:

The violence of love is a collection of extracts from Romero's homilies, letters, and articles. Each of these passages gives insight into the mind and heart of the man behind them. They show a man not afraid to expose his weakness, a man whose tremendous faith and hope call us to repentance and renewal. Originally addressed to the people of El Salvador, Romero's words speak to all people, passionately decrying injustice and violence, exhorting to peace and forgiveness, and inviting all to help build a new, just society. Chronologically arranged, the selections reflect Romero's own spiritual transformation and call us to experience a similar revolution of the heart. Romero was martyred for his insistence that following Christ cannot be relegated to the spiritual realm. He did not die in vain; the people of Central America say his spirit lives on in them. As their struggle for justice and dignity intensifies, his words take on a renewed urgency.
