Happy Feast Day of St. Oscar Romero!!
"I call on all of you,
makers of so many families,
builders of so many homes:
Let each family in El Salvador not be a hindrance
to the urgent changes that society needs.
Let no family isolate itself from society as a whole
because it is itself well off.
No one marries just so the two of them can be happy;
marriage has a great social function.
It must be the torch that lights up the way
to new liberations for other marriages around it.
From the home must come the man or woman
able to promote the changes needed
in politics, in society, in the ways of justice:
changes that will not come about
as long as home life opposes them.
But it will be so easy once boys and girls are trained
in the heart of each family
not to have more
but to be more,
not to grab everything
but to give abundantly to others.
They must be educated for love.
Loving is what the family is all about,
and loving means giving oneself,
surrendering oneself to the well-being of all
and working for the common happiness."
- Saint Oscar Romero, October 7, 1979 ... See MoreSee Less
