Volume 9 of Studia et Documenta

The Istituto Storico San Josemaría Escrivá has published the ninth volume of the Studia et Documenta journal. The new issue opens with a section on Blessed Álvaro del Portillo on the occasion of his recent beatification and the centennial of his birth.
The first article, by Rev. Federico Requena, provides information about the theology professors who instructed Blessed Álvaro del Portillo. His service to the Church in the Second Vatican Council is the topic of the second article, written by Manuel Valdés. Valdés examines the work of Blessed Álvaro as Secretary of the Conciliar Commission De Disciplina Cleri et Populi Christiani, as well as his contributions to the final version of the decree Presbyterorum Ordinis.

The next two articles look at Blessed Álvaro del Portillo’s time at the head of Opus Dei. The first, by Rev. Carlo Pioppi, studies the expansion of Opus Dei between 1978 and 1993 throughout a number of countries in Latin America (Bolivia, Honduras, Trinidad and Tobago, the Dominican Republic and Nicaragua) and in Europe (Sweden, Finland, Czechoslovakia, Hungary and Poland). The second article, by Professor Maria Eugenia Ossandón, provides details about Blessed Álvaro’s filial friendship with St. John Paul II.

Following this section on Blessed Álvaro, issue number 9 includes three articles centered on St. Josemaría: one on his secular law studies at the University of Saragossa, another on his preaching of retreats to diocesan priests between the years 1938 and 1942, and a third about the three circular letters that he sent from Burgos to all the members of Opus Dei in 1938-39.

This volume also dedicates its attention to the beginnings of Opus Dei in Nagasaki, continuing an article that was published on this topic in the first volume of Studia et Documenta in 2007.
