+Romero Statue Unveiled in LA

The Salvadoran American Leadership and Education Fund, working with the Los Angeles City Council, dedicated a statue to martyred Archbishop Oscar Romero this weekend in LA's MacArthur Park.  In addition to a swath of political figures, LA Archbishop Jose Gomez participated in the ceremony. Sources in Rome say that +Romero's cause for canonization has been green-lighted so let's hope, sometime soon, this statue will be dedicated to St. Oscar Romero.
