Faith must be lived!

“Each one of you has to be God’s microphone. Each one of you has to be a messenger, a prophet.”

From The Catholic Sun: Archbishop Romero in 1979.

These fateful words of Archbishop Oscar Romero, martyred this day in 1980, speak of what it means to be a person of faith.

Faith must be lived.

Romero advocated for the rights and dignity of those who were materially poor. He preached the gospel by how he lived. His life broadcast the Good News, calling others to lives of holiness and humility.

Your life can speak volumes, too — it’s simply a matter of letting God make of you a microphone.
