Che and Romero

Catholic New Service reports that Vatican watchers see promising signs for slain Salvadoran archbishop Oscar Romero's possible beatification. But politics might still get in the way:

Morozzo said a big, persistent problem is "the political use of Archbishop Romero."

He said in Latin America he had seen T-shirts picturing Archbishop Romero and Che Guevara, the Cuban revolutionary.

"If his (Archbishop Romero's) figure is seen as political, it is a problem for the church," Morozzo said. "They do not want a saint sharing a T-shirt with Che Guevara."
