Blessed Oscar Romero on Obeying God's Law

Blessed Oscar Romero
No soldier is obliged to obey an order counter to the law of God. No one has to comply with an immoral law. It is the time now that you recover your conscience and obey its dictates rather than the command of sin…. Therefore, in the name of God, and in the name of this long-suffering people, whose laments rise to heaven every day more tumultuous, I beseech you, I beg you, I command you! In the name of God: ‘Cease the repression!’
 — Blessed Oscar Romero

Almighty ever-living God,, who gave Blessed Oscar Romero the courage to give up his life for justice, grant, through his intercession, that, renouncing our life for Christ in this world, we may find it in heaven. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
