In the second half of 1999, 191 faithful of the Prelature and 24 members of the Priestly Society of the Holy Cross passed away.
The suffrages stipulated by Blessed Josemaria have been offered for these deceased. As we continue to pray for them, let us thank God for the example that they have left us through their fidelity in striving to transform their professional work and all the ordinary circumstances of their lives into an occasion of loving God and of serving the Church and all souls. Their love for God constitutes the meaning and value of their lives, whether outstanding in the eyes of others or whether quite ordinary, as was true in most cases.
