Audiences with Pope Francis (October 18, 2013 and December 23, 2013)

On Friday, October 18, at 11:30 am, Pope Francis received in audience the Prelate of Opus Dei, Bishop Javier Echevarría. After the audience he said that the Holy Father had expressed his happiness at the apostolic work the Prelature is carrying out, and sent his apostolic blessing to all the faithful, priests and laity, of Opus Dei.


The Holy Father Francis received the Prelate in an audience again on Monday, December 23, the day before Christmas Eve, at 11:30 am. Bishop Echevarría extended Christmas greetings to the Pope. At the end of the audience, he remarked that “when one spends some time with the Pope, one always has the conviction of having been with a good Father.” And he added: “The Holy Father has encouraged us to continue working apostolically in all the countries where faithful of the Prelature are living. Specifically Pope Francis encouraged us to carry out a fruitful apostolate of confession, which is the sacrament of God’s mercy.”
