Missão Cumprida. A biography of Álvaro del Portillo

Hugo de Azevedo, a priest, theologian and doctor in canon law, is the author of numerous books, including the first biography of St. Josemaría in Portuguese. He has now written Missão Cumprida (Mission Accomplished,) a biography of Bishop Álvaro del Portillo, the first successor of the founder of Opus Dei. The title of the book, published in Portuguese by Diel publishing company, and already translated into several other languages, makes reference to Don Alvaro’s role in carrying out projects of great apostolic importance, above all the canonical configuration of Opus Dei as a Personal Prelature, as well as his intense work in the Holy See and in the Second Vatican Council.
