St. Josemaría in Peru: Chronicle of a Trip

The Center for Studies and Communication (CDSCO) published the book San Josemaría en el Perú: crónica de un viaje [St. Josemaría in Peru: chronicle of a trip], by Fr. Antonio Ducay Vela. Written in the style of a chronicle, the book recounts the highlights of the founder of Opus Dei’s stay in the Andean country from July 9 to August 1, 1974. The 17 chapters recount the meetings of St. Josemaría with farmers and rural development promoters in San Vicente de Cañete; his get-togethers with young people, families and priests; and his pastoral activities in the city of Lima. The book also narrates the beginnings of Opus Dei in Peru, based on the memories of Rev. Manuel Botas Cuervo who, together with Professor Vicente Rodríguez Casado, began the apostolic work of Opus Dei there in 1953.
