Saint Romero of the Americas
In honor of the canonization of Archbishop Oscar Romero as a recognized Saint in the Roman Catholic faith, I would like to share a few photos from my collection. Romero's words, actions and faith inspire Christians and advocates of social justice across boundaries of country, culture and denomination.
In 2015, we attended the beatification ceremony for Oscar Romero and you might like to revisit that story today.
