Portugal from March 7 to 9
In mid-afternoon of Friday, March 7, the Prelate of Opus Dei arrived in Lisbon. On that same day he had meetings with the regional directors of the two branches of the Prelature.
On Saturday morning he went to Fatima to make a pilgrimage to our Lady. He was received by the Bishop of the diocese, Most Rev. Antonio Marto, and Bishop-emeritus Serafim. After praying in the Capelinha, he met with some priests of the Priestly Society of the Holy Cross in the House of Our Lady of Sorrows. Before returning to Lisbon, he prayed before the grave of Bishop Alberto Cosme do Amaral, who was bishop of the Diocese of Leiria-Fatima from 1972 to 1993.
In the evening Bishop Echevarría had get-togethers in Lisbon with faithful of the Prelature. He asked for prayers for the Holy Father. On Sunday afternoon he returned to Rome.
