day for missionaries martyrs

The day in which Msgr Oscar Arnulfo Romero, Archbishop of San Salvador was assassinated in 1980, was chosen 28 years ago by the then Missionary Youth Movement of the Pontifical Mission Societies of Italy, to celebrate annually the “Day of Prayer and Fasting in memory of the Missionary Martyrs.”

The slogan of the 2020 Day is “In Love and Alive” informs Giovanni Rocca, national secretary of Missio Giovani.   “A message that holds two meanings within itself.   The first, in the qualifying meaning, fully describes those who ardent of love for God the Father and His creatures invested all their time to take care of them.   The second is a real imperative, the legacy that the Martyrs received from our Lord by transmitting it to us today.   Only those who fall in love are willing to abandon the superfluous, in order to grasp the essence of life.   This promise is not only hope for the future but above all a guarantee for the present.”
