Letter of the Holy Father to the Prelate of Opus Dei on the Occasion of the Beatification of Alvaro del Portillo (June 26, 2014)
In a letter sent to Bishop Javier Echevarría, the Roman Pontiff shared his “special joy” for the new Blessed, and pointed to his “life of humble service to others, forged from his youth “in the simplicity of family life, in friendship and in service.” The Pope also said that Blessed Alvaro teaches us that “in the simplicity of our daily lives we can find a sure path to holiness.”
