The Archbishop of Pamplona opens the Cause of Canonization of Laura Busca Otaegui
On June 14, in the sacristy of the Cathedral of Pamplona, Archbishop Francisco Perez Gonzalez opened the Cause of canonization of the servant of God Laura Busca Otaegui (1913 — 2000), pharmacist, researcher, and mother of seven children. Her husband, Eduardo Ortiz de Landázuri, is also in the process of canonization. Both were supernumeraries of Opus Dei and strove for holiness, in accord with the teachings of St. Josemaría, in the ordinary activities of each day. Besides the Archbishop of Pamplona, also taking part in the ceremony were Msgr. Ramon Herrando, Vicar of Opus Dei in Spain, and Rev. Constantino Anchel, the postulator of the Cause. Among other aspects, emphasis was put on the magnanimity and understanding shown by the servant of God and her dedication to her husband, her children, and to many other people. Also stressed was that everything in Laura’s life was an expression of love for God and others, and sprang from a strong and deep piety.
