8.26 Is God’s love really stronger than any evil?
God is greater than anything we know, but it is not always easy to realise this when we are suffering under any form of evil. Still, even in such situations he wants to assure us that he suffers with us, and promises us a better life which is still to come.
Bishop Romero spoke up against the evil oppression of his people. He knew that this endangered his own life, but he also knew that standing up against evil was more important. Paradoxically, his death encouraged more people to do the same.
