WHO WAS RUTILIO GRANDE?
Rutilio Grande García, S.J. (5 July 1928, El Paisnal - 12 March 1977, Aguilares) was a Jesuit priest in El Salvador. He was assassinated in 1977, along with two other Salvadorans. Rutilio Grande was the first priest assassinated before the civil war started. He was a close friend of Archbishop Óscar Arnulfo Romero. After his death, the Archbishop changed his conservative attitude toward the government urging the government to investigate the murder. (see Wikipedia)

 FATHER RUTILIO GRANDE SJ
 (close friend to Oscar Romero)
 +
 ARCHBISHOP OSCAR ROMERO SAID:
    "When I looked at [my friend Fr] Rutilio lying there dead I thought, 'If they have killed him for doing what he did, then I too have to walk the same path' 
(speaking out against poverty, social injustice, government 
assassinations  and torture.)

WHY WS HE KILLED?
It was believed the cause of his death by the government was because of his "prophetic and pastoral efforts to raise the consciousness of the people throughout his parish, without offending and forcing himself upon his flock in the practice of their religion. He was slowly forming a genuine community of faith, hope and love among them, helping them to become aware of their dignity as individuals - of their basic rights as humans.
+
This was not agreeable to everyone, ... especially the government, ... as it awoke the consciousness of the people. To end it, it was necessary to liquidate its proponent. In this case, Father Rutilio Grande."
+
QUOTING FATHER RUTILIO:
 "I am fully aware that very soon the Bible and the Gospels will not be allowed to cross the border. All that will reach us will be the covers, since all the pages are subversive—against sin, it is said. So that if Jesus crosses the border at Chalatenango, they will not allow him to enter .... 
+
  ... They would accuse him, the man-God ... of being an agitator, of being a Jewish foreigner, who confuses the people with exotic and foreign ideas, anti-democratic ideas, and i.e., against the minorities. Ideas against God, because this is a clan of Cain’s. Brothers, they would undoubtedly crucify him again. And they have said so." 
 +
IN FATHER RUTILIO'S  HOMILY 
SHORTLY BEFORE HIS DEATH, HE SAID:
 (at a public Mass in protest of the forced exile of a priest, he said:
“All of us have the same Father. We are all children of this Father, although we were born of different mothers. All of us are brothers and sisters. We are equal. But Cain is an abortion in God’s plan, and groups of Cain do exist. 
(rosary inspired by his words above)
