Blessing of the Reburial of Guadalupe Ortiz de Landazuri in the Royal Oratory of the Knight of Grace (Madrid)

On Friday, October 5, 2018, Bishop Juan Antonio Martínez Camino, auxiliary bishop of Madrid, presided over the ceremony of the blessing of the reburial of the mortal remains of Venerable Guadalupe Ortiz de Landázuri. They were returning to Madrid after 43 years in the cemetery of Pamplona, the city where Guadalupe died in July 1975.

The remains of Guadalupe now rest in a wooden casket with her name on it, in the Royal Oratory of the Knight of Grace in Madrid. A large group of people came to venerate her remains on the occasion of the ceremony, which was concelebrated by the vicars of Opus Dei in Spain and in Madrid, the rector of the Royal Oratory of the Knight of Grace, the delegate of the Causes of the Saints for the Archdiocese, the vice-postulator of the Cause, and Father Luis Cruz Ortiz de Landázuri, Guadalupe’s great-nephew.

Among the more than two hundred people who attended the ceremony were nephews and nieces, great-nephews and nieces and numerous other relatives of the future Blessed, including the niece who bears her name, Guadalupe Ortiz de Landázuri, daughter of Dr. Eduardo Ortiz de Landázuri.
