Faithful of Opus Dei and members of the Priestly Society of the Holy Cross who died in the first half of the year 2005
In the first half of 2005, 297 faithful of the Prelature and 23 members of the Priestly Society of the Holy Cross passed away.
The suffrages stipulated by Saint Josemaría have been offered for these deceased. As we continue to pray for them, let us thank God for the example they left us through their fidelity in striving to transform their professional work and the ordinary circumstances of their lives into an occasion for loving God and 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.
