Kevin Clarke, senior editor of America magazine, will speak on the life and legacy of Salvadoran Archbishop Oscar Romero in honor of the 35th anniversary of his martyrdom. Clarke is the author of a recent Romero biography, Oscar Romero: Love Must Win Out, published by Liturgical Press as part of their “People of God” series.

Clarke will be joined by panelists, Dr. Patricia Marquez, Dean of the School of Peace Studies, and Father Peter Gyves, SJ, Associate Pastor of Our Lady of Guadalupe Parish in San Diego. This panel is particularly timely in light of the Vatican Commission’s recent designation of Archbishop Romero as a martyr for the faith, an important step on the way to sainthood.
