Romero – Compromised Canonization

Pope Francis decreed on 6 March 2018 the canonization of the late San Salvador Archbishop Oscar Romero.

However, Monsignor Jesus Delgado, the priest who was instrumental for this, was laicized in December 2016. Delgado was Romero’s private secretary, close collaborator, first biographer and co-postulator of his case of beatification.

He admitted having sexually abused a girl between ages 9 and 17. This is a rare case when sexual abuses by priests are not of homosexual nature. The victim, now in her 40s, reported the abuse to the Salvadorian government.

It seems that the abuses started after Romero’s death. In October 2014 Delgado was a prominent member of a delegation from El Salvador that went to the Vatican in order to thank Pope Francis for Romero’s beatification.

Müller has always been a raging Liberation-Theologian, so Romero the Marx-Martyr is obviously someone he's close to. Müller has never been an orthodox Catholic, he only looked so in comparison with the Bergoglians.

Another former Romero collaborator, priest Saúl David Rodríguez, who served as his diocesan chancellor when he was Bishop of Santiago de María, was subsequently prosecuted for sexual abuse of minors in the Archdiocese of Los Angeles, California

De Profundis Romero was worship by the people as a leftist popular leader not as a saint

I thought the first step was establishing that candidates had a popular devotion... I’ll grant that for Romero he has his devotees, but Paul VI? Really?

Paul VI presided over the collapse of Catholicism worldwide, and so did Romero in his country. Their canonization is a celebration of Catholic collapse and a mockery of sainthood and martyrdom.

The invalidity of the Ordinary Process compromises the Judgment of Bergoglio:

Bergoglio makes fun of God and of us Catholics, the process of canonization of Óscar Romero must have been suspended because his postulant bishop, expert historian and biographer is a pedophile, this is an evidence of the heretical Judgment of Bergoglio because the canonization compromises the pontifical infallibility… More
