After the Terrorist Attack in Barcelona (August 18, 2017)
The Prelate of Opus Dei, Msgr. Fernando Ocáriz, was on a pastoral trip to Germany when he received the sad news of the terrorist attack in Barcelona, a city where he had been a few weeks earlier. Through the “Twitter” account of the Information Office of the Prelature, he wanted to share the following message: “Closeness, prayer, and affection for each of the victims of the tragic terrorist attack. Let us implore the gift of peace and fraternity from Our Lady of Ransom.” On Saturday, August 19, during the Mass he celebrated in the parish of St. Pantaleon in Cologne, Germany, he especially remembered all the victims of terrorism and their families.
