President Obama is scheduled to visit the tomb of the martyr, Archbishop Oscar Romero. He was murdered while saying Mass in 1980.
From The Washington Post:
"Romero spoke out against repression by the U.S.-backed Salvadoran army during the Central American country’s 12-year civil war in which at least 75,000 people died. He was gunned down March 24, 1980, as he celebrated Mass in a hospital chapel. The government and leftist guerrillas reached a peace treaty in 1992."
It has been a while since I've seen the movie Romero, in which Raul Julia starred in it playing Archbishop Romero, but it is a very powerful film, very worthwhile watching. I am posting the trailer and the first two parts of the movie Romero below. Then throughout the upcoming week I will post the remainder of the movie.
