Carol’s Off to Rome

October 12, 2018

My wife, Carol, headed to Rome yesterday to witness the canonization of Archbishop Oscar Romero. The canonization will take place on Sunday. Please pray for her while on this journey – safe travels and safety throughout her trip.

Carol has been to El Salvador 18 times over the past 20+ years, feels very connected to the Salvadoran people, and is drawn to Romero and his message of social justice and care for the poor. She has had the opportunity on multiple occasions to attend Mass in the very church where Romero was assassinated while consecrating the Eucharist at the altar.

The picture of Romero below was painted by Carol and hangs in a youth center in Guarjila, El Salvador.

I’ll be sharing some of Carol’s reflections on her experience in Rome over the next several days.
