Diaconal Ordinations (October 31, 2015)
On Saturday, October 31, twenty-seven faithful of Opus Dei received ordination as deacons from the hands of Bishop Javier Echevarría. The ceremony was celebrated in the Roman Basilica of St. Eugene. The new deacons come from 13 different countries. Their ordination as priests will take place on April 23, 2016.
“Our Lord (because he is the one who has chosen you) will imprint on you a new seal, the diaconal character, with the mission of serving the Church and all souls,” the Prelate told the new deacons. The full text of his homily can be read in this issue of Romana.
