At the request of His Excellency, the Most Reverend Peter Smith, Archbishop of Southwark, in a letter dated July 1, 2016, and in virtue of the faculties granted to this Congregation by the Supreme Pontiff FRANCIS, in consideration of the foregoing, we are pleased to allow that the annual celebration of Blessed Oscar Romero, bishop and martyr, may be inserted in the liturgical calendars of the cathedral church as an optional memorial to be observed on the 24th of March.
All things to the contrary notwithstanding.
From the offices of the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments, October 3, 2016.
