Be Converted

This is the mission entrusted to the church,
    a hard mission:
to uproot sins from history,
to uproot sins from the political order,
to uproot sins from the economy,
to uproot sins wherever they are...

No one wants to have a sore spot touched,
and therefore a society with so many sores twitches
when someone has the courage to touch it
and say: "You have to treat that.
    You have to get rid of that.
    Believe in Christ.
    Be converted."

--Oscar Romero

My prayer for America. In memory of Michael Brown. And all the others...
