Blessed Oscar Romero was the Archbishop of San Salvador, El Salvador, when he was assassinated while celebrating Mass on March 24, 1980. Recently, the Vatican announced that Romero will be canonized next year. To remember his Feast Day (March 24) in a special way, we are sharing these readings that were collected to mark his beatification in 2015.
Almighty God, you called your servant Oscar Romero to be a voice for the voiceless poor, and to give his life as a seed of freedom and a sign of hope: Grant that, inspired by his sacrifice and the example of the martyrs of El Salvador, we may without fear or favor witness to your Word. Amen.
