Remembering Oscar Romero, the gift of accompaniment and Grand Rapids » Oscar Arnulfo Romero

** FILE ** Salvadorans commemorate the 20th anniversary of the death of the Archbishop Oscar Arnulfo Romero as they carry his picture in El Salvador in this Friday, March 24, 2000 file photo. A sniper shot Romero in the heart on March 24, 1980, as he raised the chalice over his head to celebrate Mass in a San Salvador chapel. The sign reads in Spanish “We ask, we demand: stop the repression, Monsignor Romero lives.” The Salvadoran government said Friday it will ask the Vatican to beatify slain Archbishop Oscar Arnulfo Romero, but it will not accept responsibility in his 1980 killing.
