Archbishop Romero: Conversion, Martyrdom, Resurrection
A traditionally pious priest and bishop, in three short years Archbishop Oscar Romero was transformed into "the voice of the voiceless" poor in El Salvador. His assassination in 1980 did not end his role as an inspiration in the Salvadoran church's struggle for justice but augmented it. Thirty-five years later, Romero is still the face of spiritual integrity in El Salvador, still "alive" in the popular church. The presentation will explore the dynamics of this miracle of faith and justice.
