As has happened in many countries and kingdoms throughout history, powerful institutions have often justified oppression against the poor. Whereas the Church and other key institutions in El Salvador protected the interests of the wealthy against the poor, Archbishop Oscar Romero spoke out in defense of the poor.

Read a quotation by Archbishop Oscar Romero:

“We must save not the soul at the hour of death but the person living in history.”

What is a logical interpretation of this quotation?

Important people who make history need to have their souls saved.

What matters most is that we repent when we die, regardless of how we lived.

How we behave and live is just as important as how we repent when we die.

Important people who make history need to be kept alive as long as possible.
