Oscar Romero was continuing his education after a few mouths he was told
that his father passed away. It was a hard time in Oscar’s life. When Oscar
was over his father’s death he was then able to help his country in

The government controlled everything that Oscar Romero was doing. The
government told the priests what to tell the people.

Oscar became friends with a priest called Father Rutillo Grande. He was
also a priest. One day when he was driving to church, Father Grande was
shot. What had happen to his friend Father Rutillo Oscar Romero was more
against the government. He did exactly what he wanted to do and said
exactly what he wanted to say,
One day Oscar Romero wrote pastoral and was given then out at church, and
the letter said exactly what the government was doing and what was going on
with their country. As Oscar Romero was very brave, he was able to tell
more and more the truth about the government.

Oscar Romero also thought up of the idea of a the church where people would
come together and talk about what was happening outside of the church the
letter that Oscar Romero wrote the government was not happy about.

On the 24th of March 1980 Oscar Romero was in church preparing for a mass
when he was shot. Some of his nuns ran up to the altar, but many stayed
down in the church they were shocked to think that someone would do that to
him. One of the last things Oscar Romero said was this “God’s reign is
already present on our earth in mystery. When the Lord comes, it will be
brought to perfection. That is the hope that inspires Christians. We know
that every effort to better society, especially when injustice and sin are
so ingrained, is an effort that God blesses, that God wants, that God
demands of us.”
Even though the death of Oscar Romero was a shock to the people of his
country Salvador, Oscar Romero knew that the government was after of him
because he was going against the government. After Oscar Romero’s death the
country of Salvador was changed.

he wanted to help a lot of people and that he cared. Oscar Romero showed
them what he could do if he did not believe in something, he showed them
how to fight and even die for what you believe in. Oscar taught them to
never give up. He gave the people who had no say, a say and cared so much,
and he supported them. Oscar Romero was a great man he did the right things
at the right time for the country of Salvador.
