Oscar Romero


August 15, 1917 - March 24, 1980.

Prophet of the people,
voice for social justice, human rights and dignity,
freedom, and non-violence,
killed by an assassin's bullet while celebrating Mass.

Remember him today.

you have no idea who he is and what he has done for the world,

Thirty years later, his light still shines.
May we grow to be worthy of it.
