Summary:

"[Oscar Romero] constructed peace with the force of love, and gave testimony of his faith in his life. " - Pope Francis

A voice for the voiceless and a champion of human rights, Blessed Oscar Romero (1917-1980) is beloved around the world. In 6 lectures, you are invited to explore his life and legacy.
Nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize, Archbishop Oscar Romero of El Salvador was an exemplar of faith in action. Under the guidance of Dr. Michael Lee, you will explore Romero's fascinating life: his humble beginnings, his courageous years as archbishop of a war-torn country, and his tragic assassination while celebrating the Eucharist. Through it all, Romero offered powerful theological reflections on Christ, spirituality, and the meaning of Christian life today.

You will begin with Romero's background, particularly his traditional theological training in Rome. You will then discover how that training was challenged by the changes in El Salvador and the Church, prompting Romero to undergo a profound transformation. You will explore how themes like conversion, martyrdom, and the political dimension of faith all reach a new depth of meaning in light of Romero's example.

Romero is an example not only to people of faith, but also to those who are concerned about the ongoing struggles in our world today. He is a model for our times who will challenge and enrich all people to find ways to contribute to the betterment of our world.
