Devotion Throughout the World
A relic in Jaen
On Thursday, October 6, a relic of St. Josemaría was placed in the parish of Santa Maria Madre de la Iglesia (Our Lady, Mother of the Church), in the diocese of Jaen, Spain. During the Mass, the pastor, Fr. José López Chica, expressed thanks for the relic and asked the faithful to approach and venerate it, so that the desire to seek holiness in ordinary life may spread to everyone. The relic was placed next to a bas-relief of St. Josemaría that was already in the Church.
St. Josemaría and Holy Scripture
In August, Professor Francisco Varo gave a conference in Tegucigalpa, Honduras, entitled Saints and the Interpretation of Scripture. The presentation dealt with the use of the Scriptures in the oral preaching and the writings of St. Josemaría.
