      Blessed Archbishop Oscar Romero of Salvador. Martyr. My God, it's about time the official church got around to beatifying Romero!! Shameful, though that it also beatified Junipero Serra who was complicit in the enslavement, torture, rape & murder of countless native California Indians.

      Let us not tire of preaching love: it is the force that will overcome the world. If there were love of neighbour there would be no terrorism, no repression, no selfishness, none of such cruel inequalities in society, no abductions, no crimes. Bishop Oscar Romero
