Tony writes from El Salvador:
Sunday, 17 November
This morning we joined with hundreds of members of the CEB’s Christian Base Communities from across El Salvador for a beautiful Mass in the crypt of the cathedral near where Archbishop Romero is buried.
These are the words of one of the hymns:
Choose life that you may be
a leaven for the human family:
then shall you live in peace,
as justice bears the gift of freedom
throughout all the world.
I do not believe in death without resurrection, which will come.
If they kill me, I shall rise once again in you,
My people, God’s beloved poor.
May God accept my sacrifice as a sign of liberation, living hope.
A Bishop, a pastor may die, but the church of God, which are my people,
this will never die.
Viva Santa Romero!
