This is an exchange I had a moment ago with my boss, a Jesuit priest:

Priest: Here are a bunch of Romero bookmarks for you to distribute to anyone, since tomorrow is Romero’s feast day.* There are two different kinds, because I wasn’t sure which picture was better. When I asked the church leaders, they said they liked this one the best, with Romero holding a small boy:

But for some people, the image of a priest holding a boy might be troubling. So I made ones with this picture too, so that people can choose:

Me: That’s doing it right.

*30th Anniversary of the death of Archbishop Oscar Romero.
