Oscar Romero's Final Sermon and the call for Justice

In the wake of yet more violence at the hands of our state in the police killing of Duante Wright, just miles away from the Minneapolis courtroom where former policeman Derek Chauvin is standing trial for the 2020 state murder of George Floyd, words fail us. But still there is a demand to speak clearly and specifically to the need for justice that comes from a rich Christian tradition. 

This week Casey reads the final sermon of Archbishop Oscar Romero, a priest in El Salvador who was assassinated in 1980 defending the rights of the poor and the oppressed. I hope that you hear (in Casey's muddled gringo rendition of Spanish names and places) the necessity of speaking clearly, of speaking specifically and of speaking directly to those state agents who are committing atrocities against our fellow human beings in our name.
