God keeps on saving history.

And so, in turning once again
to the episode of Christ's birth at Bethlehem,
we come not to recall Christ's birth twenty centuries ago,
but to live the birth here, in the twentieth century, this year,
in our own Christmas, here in [name of your country].

By the light of these Bible readings
we must continue all the history
that God has in his eternal mind,
even to the concrete events

of our abductions,
of our tortures,
of our own sad history.

This is where we are to find our God.
- Oscar Romero, SJ, December 24, 1978

Week after week, for three years, Archbishop Oscar Romero cried
out against the murder and torture practiced by the government's
military regime and advocated for peace and forgiveness.

He was assassinated on March 24, 1980 and became known
across the world as a fearless defender of the poor and suffering.

Visiting El Salvador, visiting his tomb and reading Memories in Mosaic, a collection stories from those who knew him---all were highlights of my 2006.

Let's celebrate Christmas by incarnating Jesus today in our lives and choices.
