Conclusion of the Marian Year
February 14 saw the conclusion of the Marian Year convoked by Bishop Javier Echevarría in thanksgiving for the 80 years since our Lord let St. Josemaria see that the apostolate of Opus Dei was also to include women. In the letter he wrote at the beginning of the month, the Prelate encouraged the faithful of the Prelature to take advantage of all of the graces granted through our Lady’s intercession and to give thanks to God for all his mercies with a contrite and humble heart, purified through the Sacrament of Reconciliation.
