«SIC SPONDEO, SIC VOVEO...»


JUBILEE YEAR for the CENTENNIAL of BLESSED ROMERO, 2016 — 2017
 

 
“Por tu Sagrado Corazón yo prometo darme todo por tu gloria y por las almas. Quiero morir así, en medio del trabajo; fatigado del camino, rendido, cansado... me acordaré de tus fatigas y hasta ellas serán precio de redención, desde hoy te las ofrezco. Señor Jesús, por tu Corazón y por las almas: ‘promitto’ [prometo]”. (Apuntes del 4 de abril de 1942.)


#BlessedRomero #Beatification

Seventy five years ago, Oscar Romero was ordained a priest.  During the beatification in 2015, Cardinal Angelo Amato recalled that when Romero had been a seminarian, he had kept a journal, in which he wrote, “this year will make my great commitment to God. My God, help me! Prepare me. You are everything; I am nothing. And yet, your love wants me to be a lot. Courage! With your everything and my nothing, we will do a lot.”
Abajo está el acta que firmo Óscar Romero en anticipación de su ordenación sacerdotal en abril de 1942, hace 75 años.  En latín en letras mayúsculas dice: “Así lo declaro, lo prometo y lo juro. Que Dios me ayude y estos Santos Evangelios que toco con mis manos.”
La foto qui sotto presenta Oscar Romero, nella occasione della sua ordinazione sacerdotale, settantacinque anni fa, nell’aprile 1942.  Vediamo Romero 3 ° della seconda fila a partire da sinistra.  Anche in questa foto, si vede il P. José Macagno, S.J., allora padre Ministro del Collegio Pio Latino Americano, 5 ° della prima fila a partire da sinistra, e P. Dario Ferioli, S.J., alla destra di lui.  Non si vede: P. Emanuele Porta, S.J., che ha scattato la foto (inserto).
“By your Sacred Heart I promise to give myself entirely for your glory ... I want to die this way: in the middle of work, fatigued by the journey, tired and weary ... I will recall your toils and they will be the price of redemption ... ‘promitto’ [I promise].” (April 4, 1942 notes.)
