Ordinations to the priesthood in Rome (May 10, 2014)


On Saturday, May 10, in the Roman Basilica of St. Eugene, Bishop Echevarría ordained thirty faithful of the prelature of Opus Dei as priests. After carrying out professional activities for a number of years, the new priests will now serve the Church through their ministry, dedicated to the mission of the Prelature: spreading the universal call to holiness, especially in professional work and ordinary life. In his homily, published in full in this Bulletin, the Prelate reminded the new priests that from now on they will be “ministers of divine mercy, administers of the forgiveness of sins and of the Bread of life.” And he encouraged them to foster the desire that St. Josemaría frequently expressed: “May I see with your eyes, my Christ!”

The new priests come from Africa, North and South America, Asia, and Europe.
