Mass 14-11

The parish of Solentiname as well as other Christian base communities aspired to have a Mass that could make God and Christ manifest themselves among the common people and, in this way, empower them and actively transform the world into a more just and Christian place, thanks to the community’s own means and actions, independent of the higher authority of the institution of the Church. With this objective in mind, the singularly effective observations of reality made by Mejia Godoy, worked successfully in the Mass and decentered the church that contemplated another world alien and distant from the social reality that could only be accessed through the curia, into a church connected with the real life and concrete experience of its parishioners.

July 30, Mass

Maryknoll Father John Spain, was ordained in 1970 and was immediately assigned to serve in mission in El Salvador. There he met Archbishop Oscar Romero. Read below the account of his experience with the beloved priest of the poor.

In 1930, during a special Mass in Ciudad Barrios attended by the bishop, young Oscar-who was then working as a carpenter’s apprentice-was able to convince his father to give him permission to enter the minor seminary in San Miguel.

When I arrived in El Salvador as a missionary, the first time I was introduced to St. Oscar was when he was the auxiliary bishop of San Salvador, and he shared with a group of priests his enthusiasm and desire to serve God’s people. He had just returned from a meeting for new Latin American bishops. They had shared with each other their hopes and joys for their new ministries. Later, I learned that St. Oscar chose as his episcopal motto, “Feeling with the Church”.

It is touching and comforting to know that St. Oscar, in his short visit to encourage and support us in our vocation, experienced a renewal of his own vocation during one of the most difficult periods of his life and just six months before his martyrdom.


Paul VI or Paul VI (in Latin, Paulus PP. VI),[2] secular name Giovanni Battista Enrico Antonio Maria Montini (Concesio, September 26, 1897-Castel Gandolfo, August 6, 1978), was the 262nd pope of the Catholic Church and sovereign of Vatican City from June 21, 1963 until his death in 1978.

Succeeding John XXIII, he decided to continue the Second Vatican Council, the great work of the previous pontiff. He also fostered ecumenical relations with the Orthodox, Anglican and Protestant churches, resulting in many historic meetings and agreements.

Between 1922 and 1954 he worked in the Secretariat of State of the Holy See. During his time there, Montini together with Domenico Tardini were considered the closest and most influential collaborators of Pius XII, who in 1954 appointed him archbishop of Milan, Italy’s largest diocese, thus automatically making him secretary of the Italian Bishops’ Conference. There he soon became known as the “archbishop of the poor”, because of his friendship with the factory workers he visited.[3][4] John XXIII elevated him to the cardinalate in 1958, and after John XXIII’s death, Montini was considered one of the most likely successors.[5] He became a member of the Archdiocese of Milan, the largest diocese in Italy, and in 1954 he became the secretary of the Italian Bishops’ Conference.

Today’s Holy Mass Thursday, October 21, 2021

The Board of Trustees expressed its appreciation to the Deputy High Commissioner for his address at the opening meeting and briefly met with students of the Instituto Tecnico Commerciale Oscar Romero (Albino, Italy) who have become regular donors to the Fund.

Archbishop Oscar Romero, a supporter of the movement, became the region’s most famous contemporary martyr in 1980, when he was assassinated while celebrating mass by forces allied with the government.

The film is highly sympathetic towards the left-wing revolutionaries and strongly critical of the U.S.-supported military, focusing on the murder of four American churchwomen, including Jean Donovan, and the assassination of Archbishop Óscar Romero by death squads.

The ruling Arena party is a right-wing political party that is said to have backed the death squads that assassinated Bishop Oscar Romero and six Jesuit priests and are also responsible for hundreds of murders and attacks against human rights activists.
