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
