The lives of these prophetic voices remind us of the call to serve and be with the poor.
Their deaths are a demonstration of the ultimate witnessing to this call.

These prophets influenced the lives of the people whom they served in El Salvador
and they continue to serve as modern models of faith, service, and justice through action.
