Book of Texts of Bishop Álvaro del Portillo: To Pray: as Salt and as Light

In May 2013, the publisher Planeta made available the book Orar: Como sal y como luz (To Pray: As Salt and as Light), a selection of spiritual texts from Bishop Álvaro del Portillo on various aspects of Christian life. During the 19 years that he spent as head of Opus Dei, Bishop del Portillo gave many homilies and addresses, wrote 176 pastoral letters and had hundreds of conversations on topics of the spiritual life in gatherings with thousands of people all over the world. However, until now his writings of a spiritual nature, unlike his theological-canonical studies on the role of the laity and on the ministry of priests in the Church, have not been an object of wide diffusion. This edition was issued after the official recognition of his heroic virtues by the Holy See. The texts presented in this new book have been selected by Fr. José Antonio Loarte. Como sal y como luz helps the reader to pray led by the hand of the Venerable Álvaro del Portillo and transmits the teaching of sanctification in professional work and in daily life that Don Álvaro learned from the lips of the Founder of Opus Dei.
