Church members surround Bishop Oscar Romero moments after an unknown gunman entered the chapel and shot him during Mass. A vocal critic of the El Salvador government, no one was ever prosecuted for his murder. March 24, 1980
“Beautiful is the moment in which we understand that we are no more than an instrument of God; we live only as long as God wants us to live; we can only do as much as God makes us able to do; we are only as intelligent as God would have us be.”
– Oscar Romero
Bishop Romero, pray for us.
