“Unblocked”

Interesting choice of words, for a mainstream Catholic outlet like CNS:

Archbishop Vincenzo Paglia, president of the Pontifical Council for the Family and the official promoter of the sainthood cause of the late Archbishop Oscar Romero of San Salvador, said the process to beatify and eventually canonize the slain Salvadoran archbishop has been unblocked.

Good.

My own archdiocese has its martyr, too: Father Ray Herman. Go here to learn about his heroic witness for the Gospel. He still inspires people today. He was at my parish sixty years ago as an Iowa State student.

    My wife’s family are from Bolivia. Do you know where Fr Herman served in Bolivia? What a wonderful example of the authentic Church.
