Today is the 30th anniversary of the assassination of Óscar Arnulfo Romero y Galdámez, 1917-1980, Archbishop of San Salvador.
Vatican Radio, "The Voice of the Pope and the Church in Dialogue with the World", had this to say about Archbishop Romero.
NCR's archives contain numerous articles, blog entries, and comments about the Servant of God, including "Anticipation High Ahead of Romero Anniversary," by Pat Marrin, and "Romero's Resurrection," by Fr. John Dear, S.J.
