Overview

Monseñor Romero: Memories in Mosaic is a collectively painted portrait of E1 Salvador's beloved archbishop, Oscar Romero (1917-1980) who took his place in history as a voice of the poor in the turbulent times leading up to E1 Salvador's civil war and who ultimately offered the sacrifice of his life. Stories and remembrances gathered from peasants, friends, theologians, and pastoral associates compose the colorful pieces of this multi-faceted biography. The result is a moving portrait of the archbishop in three dimensions-not simply the legendary hero, or a distant saint and martyr, but a human being with doubts and frailties who found the courage to listen to others, examines his beliefs, and step forward into a role in history that only he could play.
