“If they kill me, I will rise in the Salvadoran people.”
Romero is a compelling and deeply moving look at the life of Archbishop Oscar Romero of El Salvador, who made the ultimate sacrifice in a passionate stand against social injustice and oppression in his country. This film chronicles the transformation of Romero from an apolitical, complacent priest to a committed leader of the Salvadoran people.
This man of God forced by the unspeakable events going on around him to take a stand – a stand that ultimately leads to his assassination in 1980 at the hands of the military junta.
Archbishop Romero was murdered on March 24, 1980. He had spoken the disturbing truth. Many chose not to listen. As a result, between 1980 and 1989, more than 60,000 Salvadorans were killed. But the struggle for peace and freedom, justice and dignity goes on.

Friday night Lenten prayer and reflection proper will commence next week. Although, viewing this documentary would very much aid our prayer, reflection and intercession for this here country of ours.
All are welcome!
