Monsenor Romero

Oscar Romero: Memories in Mosaic is a collectively painted portrait of El Salvador's most beloved pastor, who took his place in history as a voice for the poor in the turbulent times leading up to El Salvador's civil war, and ultimately offered the sacrifice of his life. Anecdotes gathered in hundreds of hours of interviews with peasants, friends, theologians and pastoral associates compose the colorful pieces of this biographical mosaic. Together, they describe the archbishop in three dimensions--not as the legendary hero, or the distant saint and martyr, but as a human being with doubts and frailties who found the courage to listen to others, examine his beliefs, and step forward into a role that only he could play.

About the Author

Maria Lopez Vigil was born in Cuba and has worked in Nicaragua since 1981. She is the editor of Envio, a magazine of information and analysis about Central America, published by the Jesuit University of Central America in Managua.


"Maria Lopez Vigil has blessed us with a new and radical form of hagiography; a portrait of Monsenor Oscar Romero assembled by many hands: a mosaic composed of radiant chips of memory, precisely retrieved. Here we may listen to the voices silenced in the past, and what they offer is a symphony of testimony to the life of one who struggled among us toward heaven and a new earth." - Carolyn Forche
