"We expected a lot of people, but we never thought there would be so many," said Msgr. Ricardo Urioste, vicar of San Salvador. In the early morning hours Dec. 3, police cordoned off the streets surrounding the basilica, where the archbishop's body had lain for almost a week. Almost two hours before the Mass was scheduled to begin, the basilica was full. Mourn- ers, including bishops from 21 countries and Salvadorans who had traveled from parishes around the country, spilled out onto the streets. "I have been here since be- fore 7 a.m.," said Silvia Morales, a member of a parish on the outskirts of the city. She called Archbishop Rivera Damas "a great director of souls." In an emotional homily, Auxiliary Bishop Gregorio Rosa Chavez of San Salvador recalled how he "watched help- lessly" as doctors struggled to revive the archbishop, who died following early Nov. 26.
