In memoriam a los padres jesuitas asesinados

"Dichosos los que procuran la paz, pues Dios los llamara hijos suyos." San Mateo 5:9
In Memoriam
El Debate Nacional por la Paz ofrece esta placa en memoria de los padres jesuitas.
Ignacio Ellacuria, Segundo Montes, Ignacio Martin Baro,
Amando Lopez, Juan Ramon Moreno, Joaquin Lopez y Lopez.
Por su meritisimo trabajo en favor de las mayorias populares, ellos desde la fe en Jesuscristo y la ciencia laboraron inclaudicablemente por construir una nueva sociedad salvadoreña, asentada sobre bases de justicia, paz y respeto de los derechos humanos. Fueron asesinados junto a dos de sus colaboradoras Elba y Celina Ramos, por las fuerzas oscuras del pais, el 16 de noviembre de 1989, pero su vida y mensaje como llama ardiente de amor y verdad continuara alumbrando el camino e inspirando los corazones de todos los salvadoreños.
San Salvador, 16 de noviembre de 1990.
