Priestly Ordinations (May 14, 2011)
On Saturday, May 14, the Prelate of Opus Dei, Bishop Echevarría ordained 35 new priests for his presbytery. The ceremony took place in St. Eugene’s Basilica in Rome. “May your life be founded on the Eucharistic Jesus,” the Prelate said to the ordinands during his homily. From today on “the daily celebration of the Eucharist has to be in a special way for you the central moment of each day; the center and root of your life, of every day of your earthly path.”
Bishop Echevarría invited the 35 priests to live at the service of souls “one by one.” In the prayer of the Litany of the Saints, the assembly also invoked the protection of Blessed John Paul II.
