The hullaba loo about San Salvador hadnt escaped my notice during the last twenty years or so as I was and still am a resident of the UK ... I had heard a lot of singing going on about
San Salvador and the reason was the Archbishop Oscar Romero and his dreadful fate.
Archbishop Romero was assassinated twenty five years ago and the reasons are related to his fight for human rights and he was gunned down by a death squad ... the sign was
proffered .... "Be a patriot, Kill a Priest!" in San Salvador.
The sermon given by Canon John O''Shea touched on the subject of this Archbishop of San Salvador and he is remembered today at Mass in Southampton UK.
Archbishop Oscar Romero has been likened to Mahatma Ghandi and Martin Luther King because of his belief and conviction. Canon John O''Shea of St Edmunds Catholic Church in Southampton today remembered at Mass this Archbishop .... Oscar Romero .... keep on talking ... great stuff!
