Longing for Light

RomeroLonging for light so many people have waited in the darkness of violence and oppression, of terror and injustice, but our candles show our commitment to break through such darkness in today’s world.

The people of El Salvador found such a light in the life and death of Archbishop Oscar Romero, through whose presence with the poor, “God passed through El Salvador.” Not only El Salvador! Oscar Romero’s martyred legacy has touched people of all faiths, and none, and he has become a strong symbol, creating new visions and patterns of unity across the Churches. It is this gift and this witness that we celebrate on this day of his beatification.
