Saint of the Week: Oscar Romero

icon by Tobias Haller

In light of his beatification this past weekend, even though his feast date in our church is March 24 (the date of his assassination), we remember him this week...

His readings:

His bio:

My favorite quote: "How beautiful will be the day when all the baptized understand that their work, their job, is a priestly work--that just as I celebrate Mass at this altar, so each carpenter celebrates Mass at his work-bench, and that each metal-worker, each professional, each doctor with the scalpel, the market woman at her stand is performing a priestly office! How many cabdrivers I know are listening to this message there in their cabs... You are a priest at the wheel, my friend, if you work with honesty, consecrating that taxi of yours to God - bearing a message of peace and love to the passengers who ride in your cab." (Oscar Romero Nov. 20, 1977)
