Archbishop Oscar Romero (15 August 1917 – 24 March 1980)

This week marks the 35th anniversary of the martyrdom of  Archbishop Oscar Romero of El Salvador.

“His love of people who were poor, his faithfulness to the Gospel, led him to confront the people who had become captive to their own wealth and power. Risking his life day after day, he spoke out and walked with his people. Romero gave living witness to what it means to hate the life of the world. His life became a walking, talking profession of faith. Nothing could have ben more fitting than his martyrdom during the eucharistic celebration that proclaims the death and resurrection of Christ” (Sr. Mary M. McGlone).
