An outspoken champion for the people who were suffering during El Salvador's brutal civil war, Romero, the archbishop of San Salvador, was murdered on March 24, 1980. His death was celebrated by the military and the ruling class. The night before his murder, the archbishop made a personal appeal to the soldiers responsible for the escalating violence in El Salvador: “I beseech you, I beg you, I command you! In the name of God: Cease the repression.” The next day, he was gunned down while saying Mass. St. Romero was beatified on May 23, 2015, and canonized on Oct. 14, 2018.
