Pope Paves Way Towards Oscar Romero Sainthood

Trisha Hoffman - published on 08/24/14

A much talked-about roadblock could be overturned.

Archbishop Oscar Romero’s beatification has been a long time coming. Now Pope Francis says the hold has been lifted and hopes the process moves swiftly.

The Church has questioned whether Archbishop Romero, who was gunned down during Mass in San Salvador in 1980, died because he spoke out about his country’s military position or because of his faith.

Archbishop Romero and his impact on Latin America will be discussed at a conference at the University of Notre Dame September 25-28.
