"God, Neighbor, Self" explores the concept of "neighbor" in the biblical tradition and how it relates to God and each of us. What implications follow from Christ's placing himself in the "neighbor?" How is faith animated through our service to our neighbors and what does service tell us about our faith in and proclamation of God?
In the early morning hours of November 16, 1989, six Jesuit priests, Ignacio Ellacuria, Segundo Montes, Ignacio Martin-Baro, Joaquin Lopez y Lopez, Juan Ramon Moreno, and Amando Lopez, their housekeeper, Elba Ramos, and her daughter, Celina Marisela Ramos, were murdered by the Salvadoran military on the campus of the University of Central America in San Salvador, El Salvador. They were labeled as subversives by the Salvadoran Government for speaking out against the oppressive socioeconomic structure of Salvadoran society. Their assassinations were ordered for their unwavering defense of the poor.
