Description

Oscar Romero: Memories in Mosaic is a collectively painted portrait of El Salvador s most beloved pastor, who took his place in history as a voice for the poor in the turbulent times leading up to El Salvador s civil war, and ultimately offered the sacrifice of his life. Anecdotes gathered in hundreds of hours of interviews with peasants, friends, theologians and pastoral associates compose the colorful pieces of this biographical mosaic. Together, they describe the archbishop in three dimensions--not as the legendary hero, or the distant saint and martyr, but as a human being with doubts and frailties who found the courage to listen to others, examine his beliefs, and step forward into a role that only he could play.
