A meeting with Faithful of Opus Dei from the Delegation of Rome (December 3, 2017)
On Sunday December 3, the Prelate of Opus Dei met with faithful of Opus Dei who live in Rome. The gatherings were held at ELIS, a training center located in the Tiburtino neighborhood. Msgr. Ocáriz invited all those present to take advantage of the liturgical time: “Your entire day should be in some way like this time of Advent, a time of waiting, a time to foster the desire to find Christ.” “The time of Advent,” he said, “is particularly apt for being concerned more about others and less about oneself.”
This service to others is carried out mainly through work: “We can turn work into apostolate, helping the others. Sometimes we lack time, but there is always an opportunity to exchange a smile or dedicate a few words to a friend. A person who works well is concerned about others.”
