Oscar Romero on God’s Microphone

October 1, 2013 by

“If some day they take the radio station away from us, if they close down our newspaper, if they don’t let us speak, if they kill all the priests and the bishop too, and you are left, a people without priests, each one of you must be God’s microphone, each one of you must be a messenger, a prophet. The church will always exist as long as there is one baptized person. And that one baptized person who is left in the world is responsible before the world for holding aloft the banner of the Lord’s truth and of his divine justice.” –Oscar Romero (The Violence of Love)

    This is a great quote. In our music video, “Romero” we make a reference to Archbishop Romero speaking out on the radio during his broadcasts. Go to TheMartyrsProject.com to see.
