"The martyred Archishop of San Salvador, gunned down at the altar in 1980 after denouncing injustices and army oppression, was formally accepted as a candidate for sainthood in 1997, when he was declared a "Servant of God". He survived a theological audit by the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith in 2005, and there was talk of beatification following swiftly -- especially if he was declared a martyr." by Austen Ivereigh http://www.americamagazine.org/blog/entry.cfm?blog_id=2&id=94689713-3048-741E-8340422179000755
