LAMB’S BLOOD dedication

February 15, 2013
Padre Gaspar Garcia Laviana

Fr. Gaspar Garcia Laviana

LAMB’S BLOOD is dedicated to the Roman Catholic priests and nuns throughout Latin America who have followed the path of liberation theology and have stood, both compassionately and defiantly, with the people.

“With rifle in hand, full of faith and full of love for my Nicaraguan people, I will fight to the end for the coming of the reign of justice in our country, that reign of justice which the Messiah announced to us under the light of the Star of Bethlehem. A free country or death!” Fr. Gaspar Garcia Laviano, SS, CC., a Roman Catholic priest of the Congregations of the Sacred Hearts of Jesus and Mary, who was killed in battle with rifle in hand on December 11, 1978, during the Sandinista Revolution.
