Oscar Romero

Gunned down while saying Mass at the height of political and social unrest in El Salvador, Oscar Romero has remained a controversial and often misunderstood figure. Fr Beck shows how he was not martyred for political activism, or simply for being ‘on the side of the poor’, but for his faithfulness to Christ and his Church. Romero’s impressive body of teaching, his own personal holiness, and sufferings, are thoroughly here, and clearly illustrate what – as Pope Benedict has said – ‘an important witness to the faith’ he truly was.
