It looks like Archbishop Oscar romero will be canonized.
The Salvadorian archbishop Oscar Arnulfo Romero “was a great witness of the faith and of social justice” and the verification process for the doctrinal “nihil obstat”, or approval, of his cause for beatification was sped up under Benedict XVI’s pontificate. The news was revealed by the Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, Gerhard Ludwig Müller. As Francis embraces Latin American Catholicism, in Rome, the German bishop and theologian confirms that no more doctrinal obstacles stand in the way of “San Romero de America’s” beatification. This is the name many faithful have given to him. The Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith gave the go-ahead for the beatification when Ratzinger was still Pope.

This evening, the Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith flies to Rio de Janeiro where he will be taking part in the World Youth Day closing ceremony. Archbishop Müller’s comments on Francis’ World Youth Day show how in tune he is with the “pastoral conversion” the Pope has been so keen to promote in the Church.
