Note: Before the proclamation of the homily by the Archbishop, Plácido Erdozain and Rutilio Sánchez spoke to the people of El Salvador in the name of the priests in the Archdiocese and denounced the on-going campaign of defamation against the clergy. This week a flyer appeared which listed ten priests and in a malicious way stated that these priests were part of the guerrilla movement in El Salvador. In light of the death threats made on the life of the Archbishop, the priests also renewed their solidarity with him.
