quote for today

The Idol of Self by Oscar Romero We must overturn so many idols, †the idol of self first of all, so that we can be humble, †and only from our humility †can learn to be redeemers, †can learn to work together †in the way the world really needs. Liberation that raises a cry against others †is no true liberation. Liberation that means revolutions of hate and violence †and takes the lives of others †or abases the dignity of others †cannot be true liberty. True liberty does violence to self †and, like Christ, †who disregarded that he was sovereign, †becomes a slave to serve others.
