Vatican City, April 22 - Pope Francis has asked for
a rapid conclusion to the process of beatifying a murdered
archbishop in El Salvador, a Vatican official said Monday.
Oscar Arnulfo Romero, archbishop of San Salvador, was shot
dead by a member of a suspected right-wing death squad while
celebrating mass on March 24, 1980.
Romero, the subject of popular Hollywood films as well as
numerous news articles, had become a supporter of the opposition
during a bloody civil war in his central American country.
It's believed that his vocal opposition to the violence of
the dictatorship in El Salvador made him many enemies within the
regime and led to his assassination.
"The path of beatification has been cleared," Vincenzo
Paglia, who is responsible for the sainthood case of Romero,
said Monday.
Some in the Church establishment have viewed Romero's case
with skepticism because he has been linked with the
controversial liberation theology movement.
