The Church is Christ in Our History

Sixth Sunday of Easter

Sunday, 15 May, 1977


The Mass readings are:

Acts 15:1-2,22-29;
Revelation 21:10-14,22-23;
John 14:23-39

In this homily he makes reference to the "Declaration of the Archbishop and Clergy of the Archdiocese of San Salvador on recent events"

Words from the homily:

"Today, the Church is present in the world but not supported by earthly realities. Rather the Church is supported by the community of love, by their hope and faith in God and the Kingdom. In this way the Church is built up. My sisters and brothers, I am happy to be your bishop at this time when the Church is authentically defended, when the Church defends herself by pardoning those who slander her and kill us, when the Church does this without utilizing violence and hatred."
