GALLERY: Thanksgiving Mass - beatification of Rutilio Grande SJ

Jesuit priest Rutilio Grande SJ, two laymen and Franciscan missionary Father Cosme Spessotto have been beatified in San Salvador.

To mark the occasion, Archbishop Cushley joined Jesuit clergy at Sacred Heart in Lauriston, Edinburgh, for a Thanksgiving Mass on Saturday evening.

He said: "It's powerful and moving to see the Faith lived out in this way - people who are prepared to put themselves in harm's way for Christ and for the love of Christ's people."

Father Grande was gunned down by a paramilitary death squad along with Manuel Solórzano, an elderly catechist, and Nelson Rutilio Lemus (16), in 1977 while travelling from Aguilares to El Paisnal for a novena (writes Vatican News).
