A stone in Cartagena of the Indies

Since last April 2, one of the gardens surrounding the church of Bocagrande in Cartagena of the Indies, Colombia, is dedicated to the memory of St. Josemaria Escriva. On that day, Archbishop Carlos Jose Ruiseco Vieira, of Cartagena, presided over a brief ceremony for the unveiling of a commemorative plaque there.

The garden is located on the seashore, overlooking the Bay of Cartagena, the most important seaport in Colombia. From there one can see most of the city, including the historic center and the residential areas of Manga and Castillogrande.
