Saint­hood for a mar­tyred arch­bishop

The Washington Post - - RELIGION -

Pedes­tri­ans in El Sal­vador’s cap­i­tal pass by an im­age of Ós­car Romero, the mar­tyred arch­bishop of San Sal­vador, who will be can­on­ized Sun­day. The out­spo­ken critic of poverty, in­jus­tice and vi­o­lence was as­sas­si­nated by a sniper while cel­e­brat­ing Mass in 1980.
