  • On 23 May 2015, some thirty-five years after his assassination, Óscar Romero, the Archbishop of San Salvador, was beatified, the final step on the road to sainthood. Romero, a fearless champion of civil rights and a vociferous campaigner for social justice, was murdered by a gunman while officiating Mass in a hospital chapel.


    In Blessed Óscar Romero, Phil Brennan provides readers with a timely and impassioned introduction to the life and legacy of this brave and charismatic figure, who openly condemned the bloody reign of a corrupt military regime and became a beacon of hope for an oppressed people.
