Chuck Robertson: Power to Press On

Acts 1:6-14

Ascension Sunday - Year A

May 28, 2017

The Rev. Canon Charles K. Robertson (TEC)

 

"Lord, is this the time when you will restore the kingdom to Israel?" Of course they would ask this! Jesus' friends, of course they would ask this question, after all that they had seen and heard and experienced, the good, the bad, yes, the very bad, the darkest of times.

Many are saying that it's about time! It has been nearly 20 years since Pope John Paul II declared Romero a "Servant of God," only to then have the process stall. News reports are full of stories about how official recognition of the late Archbishop of El Salvador as a saint has been held up for years because of concerns on the part of some in the Vatican hierarchy of connections often made between Romero and the liberation theology movement of Latin America that has often been labeled as leftist or Marxist. But as Pope Francis made clear in remarks during the summer, the path towards Romero's potential canonization now has been "unblocked," allowing the pontiff to declare with confidence that the archbishop was murdered for his faith, not his politics.
