From Cardinal Seán's blog


This week we learned the date of the beatification of Archbishop Oscar Romero... I hope to hold a Mass of Thanksgiving here in the archdiocese of Boston for the Salvadoran community and others who have a devotion to this great man who certainly identified very much with the suffering and the persecuted. His preaching of the Church's social gospel put him in harm's way and eventually led to his death. He was murdered while saying Mass at the Catholic hospital in San Salvador. (I have celebrated Mass at that same altar.) I attended his funeral, which was on Palm Sunday. It was very memorable because thousands and thousands of people were gathered outside the Metropolitan Cathedral of San Salvador and, during the funeral Mass, the army opened fire on the crowd. The thousands of people just fled. I still recall that the square was completely vacant except for the palm branches covering the ground and the shoes and sandals that had fallen off the people as they trampled each other to escape. So, even in his death they were still persecuting him, and his beatification is certainly a vindication... I was privileged to be with Monsignor Romero on a number of occasions. I worked for 20 years of the Salvadoran community in Washington so I know what a great grace this is going to be for the Salvadoran people. We look forward to celebrating his beatification here in Boston.
