WATCH — Vicar General of Cape Town on canonisation of Oscar Romero

Fr Peter-John Pearson, Vicar General of the Archdiocese of Cape Town and Director of the Catholic Parliamentary Liaison Office, is in Rome for the canonisation of seven new saints. Among the seven we can now officially call saint was Archbishop Oscar Romero of El Salvador, “the martyr for justice”. Watch as Fr Peter-John shares with us his impressions of this momentous occasion at St Peter’s Square in the Vatican yesterday, 14 October 2018. He says it is “a huge affirmation of the struggle in the church for justice in our world, for justice in our institutions” and that “working for justice is an integral part of preaching the Gospel.”
