Dedication of a Square in Milan

On Saturday, January 18, in the presence of the mayor, Gabriele Albertini, Bishop Erminio De Scalzi and the Vicar of Opus Dei in Italy, Msgr. Lucio Norbedo, the "Piazzetta San Josemaría Escrivá" was dedicated in a central area of the old section of Milan, not far from the Basilica of St. Ambrose.

In his address, the mayor made reference to the canonization of St. Josemaria as “an event that made one reflect, stirring up everyone’s interest.” And he recalled that the naming of a street in Milan shows that “our city, whose reputation is due to the diligence of its citizens and their optimistic openness to the world, wants to render homage to the charismatic figure of the holy founder of Opus Dei.” Bishop De Scalzi then blessed the plaque with the name of the saint and expressed his pleasure that St. Josemaria Square fell within the parish limits of the Basilica of St. Ambrose.
