“But we should always remember the stress which he laid upon the idea that the poor were to take their own agency, their own responsibility. Rather than simply talking about a Church for the poor, Archbishop Romero was one of those who genuinely understood what it might be for the Church to be a Church of the poor. A Church where the dispossessed and the wretched found their dignity and their agency, their capacity to make a difference. Liberation is not something we receive only, but something of which we become agents. We baptised into Christ, we become agents of that Christ-like, that Christ-shaped gift of bringing liberation”.
Lord Rowan Williams
