Worshippers hold images of Jesuit Father Rutilio Grande and Franciscan Father Cosme Spessotto during their beatification in San Salvador, El Salvador, Jan. 22, 2022. The two men, along with Nelson Rutilio Lemus, a teenage boy, and sacristan Manuel Solórzano were beatified in an outdoor evening ceremony attended by their families. Father Grande, Lemus and Solórzano were assassinated in the town of El Paisnal on March 12, 1977. Father Spessotto Spessotto was shot point-blank as he prayed inside his church June 14, 1980. Salvadoran Cardinal Gregorio Rosa Chavez, who presided at the ceremony, placed the martyrs’ and the Catholic Church’s role into the context of the country’s civil conflict in the 1970s and 1980s, which ended with peace accords in 1992. The martyrs beatified were part of more than 75,000 civilians killed. (CNS photo/Jose Cabezas, Reuters)
