A guiding light
We give thanks for the life of
Saint Oscar Romero
who spreads your message
and struggled against injustice in El Salvador.
Like you, he was a shepherd, a pastor, a brother;
Like you, he was taken from us;
Like you, he remains in our hearts.
Spirit of hope, work within us,
just as you worked
in Saint Oscar Romero,
so that we too may work for justice
and spread the Good News,
by living out the Gospel,
in solidarity with those living in poverty.
(An El Salvadoran, Jack Tunnecliffe)
