Remembering Romero in song and film


Some weeks ago, I received this e-mail in response to an earlier post which quoted Archbishop Romero.  It is fitting that the anniversary of his death this year, March 24th, fell on Palm and Passion Sunday. His story is very fitting for reflection on Good Friday....when we truly enter the Passion, and even more Easter. I share the original e-mail with you along with the links contained. May this song aid you in your reflection and experience of the dramatic conclusion of Holy Week...

Subject: Oscar Romero/Music

Your recent posting quoted Oscar Romero.  The words you referenced are the very ones we chose for a song. With the approach of March 24th, I thought you might enjoy seeing a music video of that song that we just produced on Oscar Romero.  It is part of a new CD release. The singer is a UMC deacon, Michael Glen Bell, and the film maker is Owen Thomas. The Project is the subject of of a three part podcast by Bishop Christopher Coyne of the Archdiocese of Indianapolis which you may link to here:, and of a wonderful article in Canada’s Catholic Register

Go to, or click on the image below to view the video. Feel free to use it on your site, review the album or video, or blog about The Project.  If you do, let us know so we can put a link on ours. If you are interested in a story on The Project, please get back to us. We are located in Indianapolis. You can follow us on Twitter @martyrsproject.
