  • Solidarity with the poor ... means that we make ours their problems and their struggles, that we know how to speak with them. This has to be concretized in criticism of injustice and oppression, in the struggle against the intolerable situation which the poor person has to tolerate.
    • "Poverty of the Church" (section 10), as cited in A Theology of Liberation (1971), p. 114.
  • Where unjust social, political, economic and cultural inequalities are found, there is a rejection of the gift of the Lord's peace, even a rejection of the Lord himself.
    • "Peace" as cite in Jesus the Liberator (1993), p. 19
