“…the reign of God is making headway – and for this I am grateful. Do continue to be Spirit-filled and challenging.”
– Sister Dorothy Kazel, O.S.U, martyred in El Salvador in 1980
On December 2, 1980, during the height of a civil war waging in El Salvador, four American church women, Maura Clarke, Ita Ford, Dorothy Kazel, and Jean Donovan, were abducted, raped, and murdered. Many Salvadorans were tortured, and some lived to tell their tales. The U.S. Government was involved behind the scenes.
