In the second half of 2001, 227 faithful of the Prelature and 15 members of the Priestly Society of the Holy Cross passed away.
The suffrages stipulated by Blessed Josemaria Escriva have been offered for these souls. As we continue to pray for them, let us give thanks to God for the example that they left to us through their efforts to transform their professional work and the ordinary circumstances of their life into an occasion of loving God and of serving the Church and all souls. In their love for God was found the meaning and value of their lives, whether outstanding in men’s eyes, or quite ordinary, as was true in most cases.
