to be truly free

"The church cannot be deaf or dumb faced with the clamor of millions of men and women who shout for freedom, oppressed by a thousand slaveries.

But it tells them what is the true freedom that they should strive for: the one that Christ already inaugurated on earth when he was resurrected and broke the chains of sin, of death and of hell. Being like Christ, free from sin, is to be truly free with the true liberation.

And those who, with their faith placed in the Resurrected One, work for a more just world, against the abuses of a repressive authority, against the disorder of human beings exploiting other human beings, those who struggle based on the resurrection of the Great Liberator, they are authentic Christians."

-Archbishop Oscar Romero, March 26, 1978
