Oscar Romero quote and pic

On May 23rd, thirty-five years after his assassination, Óscar Romero, the Archbishop of San Salvador in El Salvador, will be beatified. Read the full New Yorker article here. Beatification is the first stage in the process of making a person a Saint, or canonization. Pope Francis has rescinded the ban on beatifying Romero paving the way for him to be made a saint as a Martyr to the Catholic Church.
