May 18, 2015. Msgr. Oscar Romero was adopted as a patron of Caritas Internationalis, according to an announcement that came just after the organization's General Assembly in Rome ended. The former Archbishop of San Salvador will be beatified on May 23, more than 35 years after he was assassinated while performing Mass.
On Sunday, after Pope Francis led the Angelus, two children released two white doves, as thousands of pilgrims looked on from St. Peter's Square.
Moments later though, the doves were attacked by a black crow and then a seagull. Eventually they were able to break free.
A similar scene played out last year when Benedict XVI released the doves from his studio window.
