Dedication of a street in Terrasini, Sicily (Italy)

Since October 14, a street in Terrasini, Sicily bears the name “Blessed Josemaria Escriva.” This is in the Sicilian town where the Calarossa International Center and the Mediterranean School of Hotel Administration have been located for the past thirty years. The activities of Christian formation and spiritual assistance in these centers are entrusted to the Opus Dei Prelature.

The ceremony, in which the local authorities participated, began with a conference in Calarossa. Among those taking part were Carmelo Carrara, mayor of Terrasini; Doctor Giuseppe Rallo, secretary general of the ARCES association which administers the center; and Professor Gaetano Lo Castro, Professor of Canon Law at the La Sapienza University of Rome, who described features of the personality of Blessed Josemaria, summing them up with the expression: “he loved and he worked.” Dr. Rallo, for his part, described the activities that are carried out in the two centers.

Archbishop Luigi Bommarito of Catania, a native of Terrasini, presided over the blessing of the plaque bearing the name of the street.

Terrasini is the fourth city in Italy to dedicate a street to Blessed Josemaria, following Rome, Bari and Palermo.
