Oscar Romero

U.S. Catholic magazine has some excellent resources about Archbishop Oscar Romero of El Salvador, who was assassinated 30 years ago while saying Mass. He was known as the "bishop of the poor" for his work defending the Salvadoran people.

The Salvadoran bishops have written to the Vatican in support of Romero’s sainthood.
