Note: Before the homily of our teacher and pastor, Archbishop Oscar A. Romero, the seminarians of the Archdiocese of San Salvador communicated to the Archbishop the results of their three days of reflection on their mission as Christians today. They also spoke about their allegiance to the Archbishop: On your second anniversary as the Archbishop we want to express to you our solidarity. We do so because of your authentic fidelity to the gospel, because you have put aside any desire for privilege and have accepted all the risks involved in the powerful denunciation of the violation of the fundamental rights of the human person. Despite the ever increasing oppression and persecution of the people and the Church, we want to let you know that with whole- hearted courage we are willing to continue to be firm in our vocation. One day we hope to become direct collaborators in the prophetic ministry that you have undertaken in order to make the Kingdom of God more present, here, among us.
