The Greatest Martyr That Evangelicals Don’t Know: Oscar Romero

On March 24, 1980 Archbishop Oscar Romero was celebrating the Mass at a hospital chapel in El Salvador when he was shot and killed. Audio recordings indicate that he was shot at the moment that he raised the cup over Holy Communion.

Just one day earlier Romero had preached a sermon where he had called upon the soldiers of El Salvador’s army to disobey orders to kill the people of El Salvador, citing the Ten Commandments and suggesting that they need not obey an order that violated God’s law.
