Beatification of Mons. Romero: Sant'Egidio at the celebration of the people of El Salvador around their shepherd

A huge crowd. The moving words of the postulator of the cause of beatification, Mons. Vincenzo Paglia and the announcement of the proclamation of Oscar Arnulfo Romero as Blessed, made by the person who was near to him, his young secretary, Father Jesus Delgado.

Yesterday in San Salvador we celebrated a great feast for the Church and the people of El Salvador and the universal Church.

The Community of Sant'Egidio, together with Andrea Riccardi, joined the joy of the people of El Salvador and of the whole Church.
