People can change and Jesus knows that. Oscar Romero was a traditional Archbishop in El Salvador. He was friendly with the wealthy and those in government circles. But after his friend Rutilio Grande was murdered by officials for helping the poor and oppressed, Romero’s life was totally changed. His eyes were open and he began to speak out against the injustice and crimes against the poorer people of El Salvador. Oscar Romero was murdered on the 24th March 1980 while saying Mass.
Because of event in his life Oscar Romero changed as Zacchaeus change when Jesus asked to stay at his house. Jesus saw behind the mask of Zacchaeus’ greed and fears, which made him treat others unjustly. Jesus saw a new future for him. God loves us for who we are, and who we might be! We can change. God is the Lover of life in all of us, and, as he did for Zacchaeus and Oscar Romero, he leads us gently to the newness of life.
Oscar Romero’s was beatified in El Salvador on the 23rd May 2015
