24. ROM Why your world is about to get a whole lot smaller, Jeff Rubin.

Three decades after the assassination of Archbishop Oscar Romero of San Salvador, his words continue to speak for the voiceless and to challenge us and make demands of us. His words from his homilies give us spirit and hope. After reading and praying with Romero, we no longer can be indifferent to the suffering of the poor and those treated unjustly in all areas of the globe. This volume presents a selection of texts from the slain archbishop's homilies, one reading per day for a year of reflection and personal prayer. Archbishop Romero's homilies address themes still current today: persecution, pluralism, idolatry, forgiveness, conformity, sin, social sanction, the prophetic church, conversion, love of God and your neighbor—among many others. As Archbishop Romero once suggested, let us move to that "intimate cell" of our conscience to encounter ourselves and then go out and encounter our poor and voiceless.

I traveled to El Salvador in 2010 to learn about the peoples and history and to march in remembrance of Monsignor Romero 30 years after his assassination. Since that time, Romero's teachings and way of life have served as an inspiration to me and I have explored many of his writings. I recently picked up this brief volume so I might have an accessible way to experience Romero's generous theology and humble sensibilities daily.

Each daily text is brief, the longest is not even a full page, so it's a nice short length to make for a brief daily ritual. I keep my copy on my bedside table so when I wake up in the morning I can roll over and read the next text. Each text is numbered 1-365, not dated, so it's good for any year. The texts begin from May 29, 1977 and progress forward, chronologically, through March 24, 1980. The final text is the last words Romero spoke before he was murdered while presiding over Mass. Scripture text readings from the Lectionary are included at the end of some passages if one wishes to reflect further on Romero's sermon snippets in light of Scripture.

Context is important to Irene Hodgson, who is the translator and writer of an excellent introduction, and the editing staff. The introduction encourages persons to go beyond this book to read and study Romero's sermons and writings beyond these small pieces of the patchwork quilt of his work. Likewise, each text has the date it was preached and sometimes the Scripture text(s) which would help the reader understand Romero's fuller theology. There are occasional explanatory notes regarding Spanish terms and/or Salvadoran culture and events which outside readers may not be familiar with to add context to Romero's words.

As for Romero's words, he touches on so many important topics. What does it mean to be church? How does one forgive and come to reconciliation? How does one focus on God above idol things? Does God love the rich and the poor alike? When is God apparent in the lives of children? How and why shall we pray? And what of nonbelievers? And of oppressors? Where do we live out social justice beyond Scripture? He writes with conviction and elegance, and Hodgson's Spanish-to-English translation is superb; it really captures Romero's passion for the people and God.

I'll add I sought out the print copy for the bed side daily devotional ritual I mentioned above though at the time the book is more available via Kindle. I am considering getting an electronic copy, too, for portability when in ministry settings where I need multiple books with short pieces. As of right now, I'm unable to comment on the Kindle's formatting of the book for its readability and will update this review if I do.

A good book to give insights to the struggles of El Salvador. As such it is not a “peaceful “ reflection, most passages have an underlying, many times openly angry and frustrated tone. I purchased the book as a daily reflection and it really doesn’t seem to be that type of book.

A servant of God....he will inspire and teach

I am using this book as the primary source in my Lenten discipline. Challenging, inspirational, and full of truth.Highly recommend for those who know there is more to faaith than taking blessings and doing nothing with them
Laizel
I love Msgr. Romero. He was the (Christ Person) to his people. He should be a Saint. His messages are simple yet profound and are teaching moments for today.
Nothing personal
Bought this for a Catholic friend who greatly admires this newly-minted saint.
