WHO WAS OSCAR ROMERO?

Óscar Arnulfo Romero y Galdámez (15 August 1917 – 24 March 1980), bishop of the Catholic Church (El Salvador). He spoke out against poverty, social injustice, assassinations and torture.  Romero was assassinated while offering Mass in 1980.  Archbishop Romero is one of the ten 20th-century martyrs depicted in statues above the Great West Door of Westminster Abbey in London, a testament to the widespread respect of Christians throughout the world.  In 2008, Europe-based magazine A Different View included Romero among its 15 Champions of World Democracy.

…..“I have frequently been threatened with death. I must say that, as a Christian, I do not believe in death but in the resurrection. If they kill me, I shall rise again in the Salvadoran people.”…..
