The Last Days of Oscar Romero
If you haven't done so already, take a few minutes (12, to be exact) to watch this trailer from the upcoming documentary, "Monseñor: The Last Days of Oscar Romero." Having worked at two Catholic magazines, I've read a lot about the martyred archbishop, but nothing compares to seeing this footage. To watch this simple bishop walk among his people, and to hear those people speak about his transformational influence on their faith, is really very moving.
Thanks to Father Robert Pelton at the University of Notre Dame for providing America with this clip. The film is now on the festival circuit, but we will be sure to notify our readers when it will be in general release.
