Priestly Ordinations at the Shrine of Torreciudad, Spain (August 31, 2014)
The Prelate of Opus Dei ordained Ignacio Mirón (Madrid, Spain) and Luis Ramon Quesada (Granada, Spain), on August 31 at the Marian Shrine of Torreciudad. Bishop Echevarría asked the new priests to “be witnesses to God who forgive and embrace everyone, good shepherds who accompany, as Pope Francis has emphasized.” And he encouraged those present to pray “for the holiness of all priests, so that they be an effective aid in fostering the universal call to holiness.”
Ignacio Mirón, 56 years of age, worked for more than two decades as a financial auditor. Luis Ramon Quesada, 49, worked as a teacher in several schools in Spain and the United States. At the Midtown Center, a social initiative of Opus Dei in Chicago, he also worked with groups of boys from disadvantaged backgrounds.
The full text of the Prelate’s homily is included in this issue of Romana.
