Catholic Social thought for the Week

24 March (Feast of Oscar Romero)

A church that doesn’t provoke any crises, a gospel that doesn’t unsettle, a word of God that doesn’t get under anyone’s skin, a word of God that doesn’t touch the real sin of the society in which it is being proclaimed — what gospel is that?                                                                                                             Saint Óscar Romero
