Audience with our Holy Father Francis Words Addressed to the Participants in the Beatification St. Peter's Square, Rome, October 1, 2014
I greet the Spanish-speaking pilgrims, who have come from so many countries. I also greet Bishop Javier Echevarría, Prelate of Opus Dei, along with the faithful of the Prelature present here to give thanks to God for the beatification of Bishop Álvaro del Portillo. May his intercession and example help you to respond generously to God’s call to holiness and apostolate in ordinary life, in the service of the Church and all mankind. Thank you very much and may God bless you.
