"Whoever tortures a human being, Whoever abuses a human being, Whoever outrages a human being, Abuses God's image, And the church takes as its own That cross, that martyrdom."


Archbishop Romero of El Salvador, murdered in 1980 because of his support for the poor and suffering people of his country
