Ordination of Priests (St. Eugene's Basilica, Rome, May 9, 2015)

On May 9, Bishop Echevarría conferred priestly ordination on 32 faithful of the Prelature of Opus Dei. The ceremony took place in St. Eugene’s Basilica in Rome.

During his homily—printed in full in this issue—the Prelate addressed the new priests with words of Pope Francis, encouraging them to be joyful, since “priestly joy is a priceless treasure, not only for the priest himself, but for the entire faithful people of God.”

“The vocation to the priesthood is a free call that God addresses to some men for the service of the Church, without taking into account preceding merits or other considerations,” Bishop Echevarría said. “Let us give thanks to God for his goodness and pray for them and for all the priests in the world. I also suggest that you pray for all the families in the world, since it is in the heart of Christian homes that God usually cultivates, as in a nursery, the various forms of the vocation to holiness,” the Prelate added.

The new priests come from fourteen countries.
