President Ceren Set to Attend Archbishop Romero’s Canonization in Vatican

SAN SALVADOR – Salvadoran President Salvador Sanchez Ceren met on Wednesday with the Salvadoran Ambassador to the Vatican City to lay out details of his visit for the canonization of the late Archbishop Oscar Arnulfo Romero, the presidential office reported.

The Salvadoran presidential office said that Ambassador Manuel Lopez “explained in detail that in the days leading to the canonization (of Archbishop Romero), which will be attended by President (Salvador) Sanchez Ceren, different activities will be held to celebrate the elevation of the martyred Archbishop of El Salvador to the altars.”

He added that the activities will be held between Oct. 11-13, including the launch of Romero’s sculpture in Rome, and will culminate with the canonization ceremony on Oct. 14.

“The Salvadoran ambassador explained that a meeting with the Salvadoran community living abroad and a Mass of thanksgiving for the canonization has been scheduled,” the government said.

Archbishop Romero will be canonized along with Pope Paul VI during the 15th Ordinary General Assembly of the Synod of Bishops, the assembly of prelates from around the world, which will be held from Oct. 3-28.

Prior to the outbreak of the brutal 1980-1992 Salvadoran Civil War, Archbishop Romero was known for his constant condemnations of state security forces’ attacks and human rights abuses against civilians.

Romero was assassinated on March 24, 1980 by a right-wing death squad while he was celebrating Mass in the chapel of a cancer hospital called La Divina Providencia in San Salvador.
