Am I a saint or a communist?

When I feed the poor, they call me a saint.  When I ask why the poor are poor, they call me a communist"

Martyred Nicaraguan church Bishop, Oscar Romero as quoted in "Deep Justice in a Broken World".  p17.

Romero was a bishop in El Salvador; it is unfortunate that a book on justice would miss by so much. If you like this quote, I would recommend you continue reading Romero. The Violence of Love, a collection of homilies, is a great place to start.
