Address by Msgr. Joaquin Alonso at the Pontifical University of the Holy Cross
On May 27 a talk entitled The Founder of Opus Dei and Priests was given by Msgr. Joaquin Alonso in the Höffner Auditorium of the Pontifical University of the Holy Cross. The conference was organized by the university chaplaincy.
Msgr. Alonso gave an overview of the life of St. Josemaría, focussing on his great love for priests. This love, shown in deeds, led, among other things, to the creation of the CRIS (Centro Romano di Incontri Sacerdotali). Msgr. Alonso told various anecdotes about how this center for priests’ gatherings came into being, a process in which he played a direct role. At the end of the conference a question and answer session was held.
