Archbishop Oscar Romero, quoted in Salvador Witness:

Because the Church has opted for the real, and not for the fictitious poor, because it has opted for those who really are oppressed and repressed, the Church lives in a political world, and it fulfills itself as Church also through politics. It cannot be otherwise if the Church, like Jesus, is to turn itself toward the poor.

[Insert “O for the P” – Option for the Poor – Paul Farmer quote from Mts. Bynd Mts. here.]
