Archbishop Oscar Romero - the First of the 'New Martyrs'

Speaker:  Carlos X. Colorado, Esq.

"How I would like a Church which is poor and for the poor!" -- His Holiness, Pope Francis


The Gospel's radical commitment to the poor.  A shepherd “with the smell of the sheep” on him.  A Church that preaches the Gospel to the “existential peripheries” of the modern world.  Before Jorge Mario Bergoglio became Pope Francis and made these the pivotal points of his pontificate, another Latin American prelate put those principles into action ... and died for them.

Carlos X. Colorado, is a former President of the Hispanic Bar Association of Orange County and a current member of the Board of Directors, STMS of Orange County.  Carlos was born in El Salvador and met Archbishop Romero during his childhood.

“I knew little about Archbishop Romero until I visited Central America in 2009 visiting my son in the Jesuit Volunteers- It was in the slums of Managua that I learned that “Romero”  is a Saint for  modern times  , a Catholic icon in the Southern Hemisphere , esteemed by Saint John Paul The Great – a man so like Saint Thomas More in courage and absolute commitment to the Gospel.”  -- Gregory N. Weiler, President, St. Thomas More Society.
