If anyone’s in Edinburgh this Sunday, the painting will be unveiled by Bishop Leo Cushley at Sacred Heart Church, Lauriston Street during the 10.45 Mass. All welcome
The painting, of Rutilio Grande (grey jacket) and Óscar Romero (cassock) is based on a photo by Brother Octavio Duran. Grande and Romero were gunned down by security forces in 1977 and 1980 respectively for speaking out against the repression of the Salvadoran poor. The painting is commissioned by the Archbishop Romero Trust for permanent display in Sacred Heart Church.
