Description:

Monseñor: The Last Journey of Óscar Romero is an 88-minute film that tells the story of the growing repression of the poor in El Salvador in the late 1970s. It is interwoven with the story of Archbishop Óscar Romero, or Monseñor as he was commonly known, and recounts the short time between his installation as archbishop of San Salvador in 1977 and his assassination on March 24, 1980.

Using the power of the pulpit, Romero—who was beatified in 2015—delivered messages of hope in weekly sermons that became national events. Encouraging direct action against often violent oppression, Romero’s speaking touched millions and affected political events in El Salvador that still have impact to this day.

The martyrdom of Archbishop Romero is a powerful witness to the life of a modern Christian hero. The film recounts these events through actual footage of the time and interviews with many who were there and knew the Monseñor.

The film was produced by the Kellogg Institute at the University of Notre Dame.

Ave Maria Press

Serving the Catholic Community for Over 150 Years!

Ave Maria Press, established in 1865 by Rev. Edward Sorin, C.S.C., Ave Maria Press remains committed to its core mission in more than 150 years. It began as the third apostolate of Holy Cross in the US and published "The Ave Maria" magazine by Fr. Sorin with three goals in mind: to glorify Mary, highlight Catholic families, and present the best American Catholic writing.

Ave Maria thrived for over 100 years and became the most popular Catholic magazine in the country. Under the leadership of Rev. Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C., the magazine grew and started publishing hardcover books. Holy Cross religious, including priests, brothers, and sisters, played essential roles in the magazine's operation. After the magazine ceased publication in 1970, Ave Maria Press focused on book publishing and has since published works by notable Catholic authors.

Now owned by the United States Province of the Congregation of Holy Cross, Ave Maria Press remains one of the oldest Catholic publishing houses, specializing in religion textbooks, ministry resources, and books on prayer and spirituality.
