Montevideo, Uruguay -- At the University of Montevideo

On April 1 the investiture of the new Rector of the University of Montevideo took place. The university is an initiative begun by faithful of the Opus Dei Prelature together with other people in the Uruguayan capital. The ceremony began with words of thanks by Professor Mariano Brito, the outgoing Rector, which was followed by some words from the new Rector, Professor Santiago Perez de Castillo. The closing talk was given by the Minister of Education, Maria Simón.

The new Rector pointed out three priorities: “to form professionals to build worthy men and women; to do research aimed at getting closer to the truth; and to serve society, among other ways, by providing opportunities for upward mobility.” Professor Perez del Castillo added that “a determining factor for me has been what St. Josemaría Escrivá always taught: loving the world passionately, seeking the fullness of Christian life. By doing so we give meaning to our lives.”
