Mass of the Holy Spirit
On Saturday January 21, there began in Rome the process foreseen for the election and appointment of the Prelate of Opus Dei, with the first meeting of the plenary session of the Council for the women of the Prelature, called the Central Advisory.
The first day began with the Mass of the Holy Spirit in the prelatic church of Our Lady of Peace, to place the work of the Congress under Mary’s protection.
During the homily, the then Auxiliary Vicar of the Prelature, Msgr. Fernando Ocáriz, said that “a new page in the history of Opus Dei is being opened. The Holy Spirit is the first protagonist. He infuses charity into our hearts and fills us with joy.”
He also invited his listeners to ask “the Holy Spirit to accompany the new Father and Prelate so that he may guide Opus Dei with full fidelity to the Church and the spirit that St. Josemaría had transmitted.”
