Oscar Romero: Memories in Mosaic

Oscar Romero: Memories in Mosaic

by Maria Lopez Vigil

Editorial Reviews

America Magazine
Memories in Mosaic conveys a palpable sense of who [Romero] was and of the remarkable transformation he underwent in the three brief years.... Readers� hearts may well be touched by [this book], possibly even to tears.
Report on Central America & Mexco
Carefully crafted and pieced together into a beautiful final work of art.... It is a gospel for our contemporary world. ...An intensely universal story, rich with meaning for us as we try to find our way in this world.
Sojourners Magazine
We expected just another tribute.... Then we actually read the excerpt.... Through these well-told stories, the icon [of Romero] became distinctly human again, with all the fascinating and life-sized contradictions, quirks, fear, and raw courage that any person might possess—maybe even one of us, or one of you. We were, in other words, wowed.

What People are saying about this

Marie Dennis
This unique lens—now finally published in English—gives focus to many important facets of Archbishop Romero�s life. It is a lovely gift that touches the heart and challenges the soul of the reader. It is a collage that depicts Romero�s humanity and his faithfulness.
—Marie Dennis, Director Maryknoll Office for Global Concerns, coauthor of Oscar Romero: Reflections on His Life and Writings and author of A Retreat with Oscar Romero and Dorothy Day
Carolyn Forche
Mar�a L�pez Vigil has blessed us with a new and radical form of hagiography: a portrait of Monse�or Oscar Romero assembled by many hands: a mosaic composed of radiant chips of memory, precisely retrieved.
—Carolyn Forch�, poet and author of The Country Between Us.
Walter Sullivan
An excellent resource to keep alive the memory of Archbishop Oscar Romero, a martyr of the Church. His life and death are a compelling reminder to bishops of our call to faithfully teach the whole Gospel, despite personal consequences. This work provides all Christians with a compassionate, challenging model for living the Gospel of peace with justice, especially justice for the poor and oppressed.
—Walter Sullivan, Bishop of Richmond, Virginia
James P. McGovern
Archbishop Romero has been a model for us all on a life dedicated to human rights and dignity, peace and justice. These personal stories and memories now give us a more intimate look at the flesh and blood man, whose humanity is more inspiring than his martyrdom.
—James P. McGovern, US Representative (MA)
