Participation in the Meeting for Friendship among Peoples, Rimini, Italy (August 2, 2014)

On Thursday, August 28, the Prelate of Opus Dei took part in the Rimini Meeting with a presentation entitled “Walking to Emmaus, by all the paths of the world,” centered on the commitment to better the world with a spirit of service, in line with Pope Francis’ invitation to go out to all the “existential peripheries.” In his address, he encouraged his listeners to offer a living witness to the Gospel by their actions of solidarity to eradicate material poverty, while referring to some specific examples from the lives of St. Josemaría and Blessed Álvaro del Portillo.

This was the first time that a Prelate of Opus Dei has participated in this event, organized by Communion and Liberation. Bishop Echevarría praised its founder, Luigi Giussani, for his life of piety, apostolate and service to the Church, and expressed the hope that his process of canonization might soon reach a favorable conclusion.

The text of his presentation is included in this issue under the heading “Addresses.”
