Screening of Archbishop Óscar Romero documentary

Pope Francis holds a portrait of Archbishop Óscar Romero

The Embassy of El Salvador to the Kingdom of Belgium will screen, in tribute to the Archbishop and Martyr Óscar Romero, the documentary “El Desagravio” (The Reparation) in the facilities of the Cervantes Institute in Brussels.

Archbishop Óscar Romero was shot dead while celebrating a Mass in El Salvador on March 24, 1980. His canonisation process continues open, “in its final stages” according to sources from the Archdiocese of El Salvador. Romero was the “voice of those without voice”, and advocated to end violence and kills.

After the screening of the documentary, Father Martin Maier SJ, JESC’s Secretary for European Affairs, will participate in a colloquium together with Mr. Julian Filochowski and Mr. Gianni Beretta, the filmmaker and creator of the documentary. The event will take place next Tuesday, 20th of March at 6:30pm in the Cervantes Institute in Brussels (Avenue Louise 140, 1050 Ixelles).
