Café de San José de la Majada, Juayúa



What a great surprise from my dearest postcard friend Vanessa who was on a trip to El Salvador! 🙂



On the stamp you could see Óscar Arnulfo Romero y Galdámez. He was a bishop of the Catholic Church in El Salvador. He became the fourth Archbishop of San Salvador, succeeding Luis Chávez, and spoke out against poverty, social injustice, assassinations and torture. Romero was assassinated while offering Mass in 1980.

In 1997, Pope John Paul II bestowed upon him the title of Servant of God, and a cause for beatification and canonization was opened for the assassinated bishop. As the canonization process continues, some consider Romero an unofficial patron saint of the Americas and/or El Salvador; Catholics in El Salvador often refer to him as “San Romero”.
