Novena to Blessed Álvaro Asking for Inner Peace
A notable feature of Blessed Alvaro del Portillo was the peace and joy that he spread around him; he transmitted to souls the serenity that he bore in his heart, a fruit of grace and of his own spiritual struggle. Inspired by these features, the priest Francisco Faus composed a novena to Blessed Alvaro to ask for serenity and peace of heart when facing difficult situations in life. The novena offers a daily text from the Blessed for meditation, possible intentions for each day, and a prayer to Blessed Alvaro’s intercession to attain these graces. The digital version is available in various languages on the Opus Dei website.
