"Because the Poor are Plundered"

"'Because the poor are plundered, because the needy groan, I will now rise up,' says the Lord."
Psalm 12:5

"The church is obliged by its evangelical mission to demand structural changes that favor the reign of God and a more just and comradely way of life. Unjust social structures are the roots of all violence and disturbances. … Those who benefit from obsolete structures react selfishly to any kind of change." -- Archbishop Oscar Romero, November 1979. Today [24 March 2011] is the 31st anniversary of his martyrdom."  emphasis added
