Salvadoran Catholics rekindle hope for Archbishop Romero's beatification
CWN - March 25, 2013
Hundreds of Catholics gathered in San Salvador, crowding the city's cathedral to overflowing, to mark the March 24 anniversary of the killing of Archbishop Oscar Romero.
Archbishop Romero was gunned down while celebrating Mass in the same cathedral in 1980. The killing was attributed to right-wing "death squads." Dozens of worshippers at the anniversary Mass carried signed urging Pope Francis to hasten Archbishop Romero's beatification.
