Romero – a symbol of friendship in Birmingham Archdiocese

What motivated Romero?  “Friendship”, said a little boy on the back row.  Last Friday 16 March, CAFOD helped launched a week of Romero anniversary events across the UK, starting at Birmingham cathedral.

About 150 people attended a beautiful Mass, followed by a talk, video and discussion about Archbishop Romero’s contribution to the Church’s mission of peace and justice.

“Please tell the people of El Salvador never to give up their struggle for justice”, said a man in a wheelchair.  A lady added, “Do you know if people there pray for us?  We need their prayers too”.

These messages will be shared at Romero events in El Salvador during the coming week, expressing our solidarity with those who continue Romero’s work for justice there.
