Vatican Radio.
Vatican Radio’s Philippa Hitchen reports that on Thursday, Sept. 19, a new cross and reliquary was dedicated to Oscar Romero in Southwark, London, U.K.

A Salvadorian cross was dedicated to Archbishop Romero, containing a skull cap and a fragment of the blood-stained alb he wore on the day of his assassination.

The memorial is significant to the large Latin American community in London and holds special ecumenical importance. As a man of God, Archbishop Romero has inspired people of other faiths.

Representatives of other Christian denominations joined in the services to remember Archbishop Romero's life.

Archbishop Romero, Servant of God, was the former Archbishop of San Salvador. He was shot dead while celebrating Mass on March 24, 1980.
