Murder outside the Cathedral

March 1981
National Review;3/20/1981, Vol. 33 Issue 5, p263
The article looks at the political stance of the Maryknoll Order relating to the murder of three American nuns and one lay missionary belonging to the same Order. Michael Novak, a contributor to "National Review" magazine, wrote that Maryknoll priests refer to their leadership as the Marxist Maryknoll Missionaries. Maryknoll publications even feature anti-capitalistic and pro-socialist articles. After the murder, Maryknoll Order president Melin Roper commented that they have a mission based on the gospel which has political implications. Prior to the death of Sister Maura Clarke, she refused, in an interview, to judge those who resort to violence because of institutional injustice present in El Salvador.
