As a tireless worker and man of faith in San Salvador, Archbishop Oscar Romero fought for basic human rights and justice, particularly for peasants who were often overlooked.

In a country known for violent conflict, he campaigned for protection for those who struggled to achieve that justice.

His enthusiasm for his chosen path brought him international recognition as a mouthpiece for the impoverished and downtrodden.

Romero was even nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize in 1979 for his relentless efforts.
