Truly I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of my brothers and sisters,
you did it to me.
The foundation of the Church’s social teaching is the Gospel and the teaching of Jesus Christ about the dignity of the human person. Everyone is made in the image and likeness of God and has a dignity that does not depend on age, race, gender, wealth or any other attribute.
Justice and Peace is the channel established by the church to make its social teaching known to all its members and to encourage action for the common good.
To work for justice and to pray for peace … these are not optional extras for a Catholic. They are essential threads in the very weave of Catholic living. Justice and Peace..should offer focus, guidance and practical opportunities for concerned persons to engage with society in a way which brings the values of the Gospel to the issues of the day. Archbishop Mario Conti, 2009.

This play can be thoroughly recommended.
Romero – Heartbeat of El Salvador' is a new play by RISE Theatre in association with The Archbishop Romero Trust.
It tells the true story of Blessed Oscar Romero and the people of El Salvador and is brought to life with explosive energy and passion from the RISE team, accompanied by an original sound track from Joshua James Otto and inspiring graffiti set design by Gage Graphics.
Romero chose to challenge those in power and stand up for social justice. He demanded respect for human rights. In 2017, Romero’s Centenary year, we continue to draw much inspiration from his example, particularly when considering and responding to the injustice and oppression taking place in our world today.

“Watching this play is a thought-provoking, challenging and moving experience that leaves you wanting to know more about the life and legacy of this great man of justice." Bridget Fenwick, CAFOD (March 2017)
