The Lord will show his justice to the nations of the world.
Archbishop Oscar Romero, assassinated 33 years ago today, offering Mass in San Salvador.
Archbishop Romero is remembered as a Church leader of hope in a country that was ravaged by poverty, injustice and oppression.
In the face of incredible injustice, the Archbishop knew the Church to be a beacon of faith, hope and charity, recognized his responsibility to be a witness to these virtues and to challenge the oppressors, especially those who claimed to be Catholic. Romero’s cause for canonization is being studied.
