Who was Martín-Baró?

Martin Baro drawingIgnacio Martín-Baró, S.J. (1942-1989), was a disciplined professional who worked tirelessly as a Jesuit priest, psychologist, and as Vice Rector of the University of Central America.

His self-discipline was balanced by a true passion for helping the poor and advancing social justice in El Salvador. These passions, which conflicted with the governmental agenda of Salvadoran military leaders, prompted his execution-style murder in November 1989. His life work has strengthened the Jesuit mission of ministry, service, and teaching the poor and serves as inspiration for others who seek to create a socially just world.
