On this day 24 March in 1980,
whilst preaching at Mass,
Archbishop Oscar Romero was assassinated
by a gunman in El Salvador.

“This is the mission entrusted to the church, a hard mission:
to uproot sins from history,
to uproot sins from political order,
to uproot sins from the economy,
to uproot sins wherever they are.
What a hard task!...”

January 15, 1978
