“We will follow God’s order, not men’s”

“We will follow God’s order, not men’s” April 30, 2009

Let it be quite clear
that if we are being asked
to collaborate
with a pseudo peace,
a false order,
based on repression and fear,
we must recall that the only order
and the only peace
that God wants
is one based on truth and justice.
Before these alternatives,
our choice is clear:
We will follow God’s order,
not men’s.

– Archbishop Oscar Romero (July 1, 1979)
