Oscar Romero, 1917 – 1980

Thirty years ago today, Archbishop Oscar Arnulfo Romero y Galdamez was assassinated by a right-wing death squad as he was raising the chalice at the end of the Eucharist.

Archbishop Romero bio was a hero, perhaps eventually to be canonized as a saint. It is forever our shame that the United States supported the oppressive regime that included the men who murdered him.

Rest In Peace.

Later,
