Romero watches over beautiful and suffering El Salvador

Mural in San Francisco's Excelsior district.
It was announced today that Pope Francis had cleared the hurdles for the assassinated archbishop to be declared a saint. Fr. Romero threw in with the poor against their oppressors and died for his courage.

The news will be a cause for rejoicing in the city of Saint Francis, where so many Salvadorans have washed up in the wake of their country's travails -- and where now they wait anxiously to learn whether Donald J. Trump will really expel them from their place of refuge.
