Participation in World Youth Day

The Prelate of Opus Dei, Bishop Javier Echevarría, participated as a catechist bishop in the 20th World Youth Day in Cologne. Bishop Echevarría’s catechesis took place on Wednesday, August 18, in the parish of St. Nikolaus (Bensberg), and on Thursday, the 19th, in that of St. Margarita (Düsseldorf-Niederrhein).

About 500 pilgrims took part in these activities. They came from Venezuela, Mexico, Honduras, Guatemala and Uruguay, as well as from the dioceses of Huesca and Barbastro in Aragon (northern Spain). Barbastro is the native city of the founder of Opus Dei, St. Josemaría Escrivá.

Bishop Echevarría, in his catechesis, emphasized docility to the action of the Holy Spirit, the joy of participating in Christ’s life and following in his footsteps, in response to the divine call. He counseled the young people to strive to model their lives on Jesus, by examining their personal conduct once and again.
