Bishop John Barres has written a pastoral letter to the People of God of the Diocese of Rockville Centre on the occasion of the October 14, 2018 canonization of Archbishop Oscar Arnulfo Romero.

“As a Catholic martyr, Archbishop Romero made the holy sacrifice of his life in the context of the Holy Sacrifice of the Catholic Mass,” Bishop Barres writes. “He teaches us so powerfully that our embrace of the Cross of Christ in our lives connects with the rhythm of the Pascal Mystery Sacrifice of the Mass streaming through every dimension of our lives and missionary spirit on Long Island and beyond.”
