Archbishop Oscar Romero

BY CHRIS KERRMarch 26, 2013

Archbishop Oscar Romero was assassinated in El Salvador on March 24, 1980. His spirit remains a witness to the Christian call for peace and justice. This video offers images of the events surrounding the 33rd anniversary of his death in San Salvador, El Salvador.

In honor of this anniversary we offer the following interview and resource.  You can also view Part I of our anniversary feature.

The Project: Martyrs Prayers: An Interview with Michael Glen Bell and Duane W. H. Arnold 

The Martyrs Project aims to strengthen 21st century Christian music by reconnecting current needs and concerns with ancient roots. It uses historic forms of prayer in a contemporary and inclusive expression to inspire and to teach, but most of all, to re-discover in the Martyrs’ Prayers, the mystery of God. ISN has chosen to bring attention to the project because of the emphasis on Archbishop Oscar Romero, assassinated in El Salvador in 1980 as a response to his vocal advocacy for the poor and marginalized.

The interview features the creators of the project Michael Glen Bell and Duane W. H. Arnold.

More information about the project can be found at: or watch the music video of “Romero” below.
