He died for the Faith:

Archbishop Oscar Romero, who was shot dead in El Salvador, while celebrating Mass on March 24th 1980, was beatified this weekend and is now declared a Martyr for the faith. El Salvador is a country in which the land and the wealth is in the hands of a few and protected by the military. The vast majority of the population struggle to survive and this was particularly the situation when Oscar Romero was appointed Archbishop in 1977. His predecessor Archbishop González was a strong supporter of peasants and workers organisations. The ruling families regarded him as a communist. So when Oscar Romero was appointed, they worked to influence the appointment of someone they thought would not challenge the establishment.

But a short time after the appointment of Oscar Romero as Archbishop, his close friend a Jesuit Priest, Rutilio Grande, was murdered by state agents. Much to everyone’s surprise, the new Archbishop proved to be a determined man. He cancelled Sunday Mass throughout the Diocese and convened the Salvadoran Church in the Cathedral for a single Mass, there; he publicly blamed the Government for Grande’s death and demanded justice. From that moment until his own death, he condemned the poverty, social injustice, assassinations and torture that were destroying the people and the country.

Blessed Oscar Romero pray for us.

 

 

PRAYER FOR PREPARATION TO STUDY

Lord, I know you are with me and love me.
Give me peace of mind as I prepare for this time of study.
Help me to focus on my books and notes,
keep me from all distractions so that I will make the best use
of this time that is available to me.

Give me insight that I might understand what I am studying,
and help me to remember it when the time comes.
Above all, I thank you for the ability to be able to study
and for the many gifts and talents you have given me.
Help me always to use them in such a way
that they honour you and do justice to myself.

Amen
