Among the many fascinating relics to be seen in the small museum dedicated to Oscar Romero at the site of his assassination on March 23, 1980 are several small shelves of books in his rooms at the time. Most are the books of a churchman; collections of homilies, the liturgy of the hours, a Roman Missal, a Jerome Biblical Commentary.
Others are lives of the saints, or collections of church documents, or reports of various meetings. Others are intriguing glimpses into his interests (or maybe not--who knows what wasn't a gift?), and some are just charming looks at the human person.
Some selections: Hans Kung, SOR CRISTIANO LOS TEXTOS DE MEDELLIN
Karol Wojtyla, SIGNO DE CONTRADICCION AEROBICS: EJERCITOS AEROBICOS
OWNERS MANUAL: TOYOTA CORONA (the car is still outside!) and last but not least (well, maybe least), an English language copy of Malachi Martin's gossipy, conspiratorial novel about the Catholic Church, THE FINAL CONCLAVE.
