Celebrating the Unifying Love of Monsignor Óscar Romero,
Pope Francis has declared Monseñor Óscar Romero a Martyr of the Church, which means he will soon be beatified. In that spirit, this year's annual Romero commemoration will focus on the life of the former Archbishop of San Salvador. His life demands serious reflection, especially by us of the United States to whom he stands as a sign from God. "The conversion of Oscar Romero and his subsequent peacemaking invite our own conversion and renewed peacemaking," said Donna Bruzzeze, a member of the Albuquerque planning committee.
