By the grace of God and of the Apostolic See

Prelate of Opus Dei


Bishop Javier Echevarría Rodríguez, Prelate, to all the faithful of the Prelature of the Holy Cross and Opus Dei.

Immediately after the death of Dora del Hoyo, on January 10, 2004, clear signs began to appear of the strong and widespread reputation for holiness enjoyed by the first numerary assistant in Opus Dei. Since that date I have received hundreds of written and signed accounts sent spontaneously by faithful of the Prelature who lived with Dora and by other persons who knew her. These amply attest to her exemplary Christian life.

Because of these testimonies, we feel compelled to continue the investigation. After having carried out the preliminary steps foreseen by the current norms, I have concluded that conditions are present to introduce the Cause of canonization for Salvadora del Hoyo Alonso (Dora).

Therefore I invite all the faithful of the Prelature of the Holy Cross and Opus Dei to consider whether they have anything useful to report concerning the cause, both favorable and unfavorable to it, as well as anything she may have written or documents referring to her person and deeds, and that they make them known with full freedom, so as to enable the investigation to go forward to a final result that will make the truth completely clear.

Rome, October 11, 2011
