Oscar Romero...

The 24th of March 1980, Archbishop Oscar Romero was assassinated. He said: 

Peace is not the product of terror or fear.
Peace is not the silence of cemeteries. 
Peace is not the silent result of violent repression. 
Peace is the generous, tranquil contribution of all to the good of all. 
Peace is dynamism. 
Peace is generosity. 
It is right and it is duty.

Days before his murder Archbishop Romero told a reporter, "You can tell the people that if they succeed in killing me, that I forgive and bless those who do it. Hopefully, they will realize they are wasting their time. A bishop will die, but the church of God, which is the people, will never perish." 

Descansa en paz, rest in peace Oscar Romero...
