Wake Up, Catholics!

June 1981
National Review;6/12/1981, Vol. 33 Issue 11, p647
The article argues the need for the El Salvador Catholic Church to establish a countervailing force that would stop exploitation from an organized group of revolutionists. It reveals how Roy Bourgeois, a priest from Chicago, Illinois, disappeared in the country. He was there to become a translator for CBS-TV. A media hype ensued following his disappearance as well speculations that he was killed by the fascists. U.S. Secretary of Sate Alexander Haig has taken action by threatening El Salvador will loose its support from the U.S. unless the Bourgeois matter is resolved. Later, Bourgeois appeared in the U.S. Embassy in El Salvador announcing that he had spent his days among the poor with whom he intended to unite in their struggle for justice and peace.
