included about 20 Salvadorans and other
Latin American Catholics. “It was very

have disappeared and been forgotten, but
Romero continues to shine a light over the
poor and marginalised of the earth.”

Pope, sent a personal message to the
After Mass on Pentecost Sunday in Rome,
Pope Francis spoke with affection about
Archbishop Romero ‘who was killed, out
of hatred of the faith, as he celebrated
the Eucharist’. Francis hailed Romero as
‘a zealous pastor who, (following) in the
example of Jesus, chose to be in the midst
of his people, especially the poor and
oppressed, even at the cost of his life.’
