The photo above was taken around the time of young Oscar Romero’s ordination. He was born on this date in 1917.

“Beautiful is the moment in which we understand that we are no more than an instrument of God; we live only as long as God wants us to live; we can only do as much as God makes us able to do; we are only as intelligent as God would have us be. ” — from his last homily, 1980

St. Oscar Romero, pray for us, that we may understand what God would have us be!
