Ordinations to the diaconate in Rome (March 1, 2014)
Bishop Javier Echevarría conferred diaconal ordination on two associate faithful of the Prelature: Ignacio Mirón López and Luis Ramón Quesada Bejar. The ceremony took place on Saturday, March 1, in the parish church of St. Josemaría Escrivá, in Rome.
During his homily the Prelate invited those present “to give thanks to the Most Holy Trinity, and also to receive with great frequency and intensity the sacraments, channels of grace that bring us closer to God; and specifically, for ourselves, Confession and the Eucharist.”
Ignacio Mirón worked as a teacher in the Tajamar school for 16 years. During these years he earned a degree in the Science of Education and wrote various manuals for educators. After this experience gained in Madrid, he went to Chicago, where he was in charge of the formation of parents and teachers at Midtown Center, a supplementary education center. On returning to Spain he taught for 14 years in the Torrevelo School in Santander, and Los Olmos in Madrid. While preparing for the priesthood he finished a doctoral thesis in Theology.
Luis Ramon Quesada also previously had a long professional career. He worked in the field of business management, both in consulting and financial auditing. He combined his professional obligations with attention to various initiatives for the Christian formation of youth. His professional life took place in several localities in the province of Jaén and in Madrid. In September 2011, he began his licentiate in Theology at the University of Navarra, and subsequently carried out research in the field of spiritual theology related to the work of the Second Vatican Council.
