A chapel dedicated to St. Josemaria Escriva

On August 10, 2006, Cardinal Joachim Meisner blessed a new chapel dedicated to St. Josemaría Escrivá in the parish church of St. Pantaleon in Cologne. The altar in the chapel contains a relic of the saint. “It is good that we have blessed an altar in honor of St. Josemaría here in St. Pantaleon. Here we will always be able to return to the charism of the beginnings, to the person who has given us the savor of the Gospel,” the Cardinal said.

In August, 2005, on the occasion of World Youth Day, Pope Benedict XVI was able to see the almost completed chapel during his meeting in St. Pantaleon with seminarians from all over the world. Bishop Javier Echevarría, Prelate of Opus Dei, was present at that ceremony.

The apse of the chapel has a relief of St. Josemaría. Some new windows representing the Holy Family have also been installed. In 1963, the Founder of Opus Dei preached a homily entitled In Joseph’s Workshop, in which he summed up the spirit of the sanctification of work: “Sanctify your work, sanctify yourself in your work, and sanctify others with your work.”
