Blessed Sr Stefani MC and Archbishop Romero


Pope Francis at the angelus on May 24, 2015

"Yesterday, in El Salvador and Kenya, an archbishop and a nun were beatified. 

The first is Archbishop of San Salvador Oscar Romero, killed in odium fide, while he was celebrating the Eucharist. This zealous pastor, following the example of Jesus, chose to be among his people, especially the poor and the oppressed, even when it cost him his life. 

The nun is Italian Sister Irene Stefani of the Consolata Missionaries, who served the Kenyan people with joy, mercy and tender compassion. The heroic example of these blessed inspires in each of us to have the fervent desire to witness to the Gospel with courage and self-sacrifice."
