Saint of the day - Oscar Arnulfo Romero
Readings for today’s Mass
Romero was guilty of doing all those things that Jesus called us all to do if we pick up the cross and follow him. Recall what Jesus said the shepherd will do for the sake of one missing sheep. Behold what the Samaritan did for someone he'd never known. Next week we enter into Holy Week and celebrate the most sublime example of all that Jesus taught. No one has greater love than to lay down one's life for a friend.
This is the story of the martyr Oscar Romero. Like Jesus, he challenged the state for justice and social change for the sake of the least of the Salvadorans. Like Jesus, who stood up to the Chief Priests and Pharisees, Romero also challenged the Church to take a more active role in fighting for the rights and dignity of all the people of El Salvador, especially for the sake of the poor and the oppressed.
Do yourself this favor; before his canonization, get a good biography of the Archbishop Romero and get to know the man who will be St. Oscar,
