A Painting in the Basilica of Suyapa, Tegucigalpa, Honduras (June 8, 2019)

On the afternoon of Saturday, June 8, in the Basilica of Our Lady of Suyapa, a portrait of St. Josemaría was blessed. The ceremony was presided over by the Cardinal Archbishop of Tegucigalpa, Archbishop Oscar Andrés Rodriguez Maradiaga, who was accompanied by the Vicar Delegate of Opus Dei in Honduras, the pastor and rector of the Basilica, and other priests, along with many faithful with a devotion to St. Josemaría in Honduras.

The painting, by Mexican painter Arturo Guerrero, was placed for the veneration of the faithful in the church's right transept, where portraits of other recent saints such as St. John XXIII, St. John Paul II and St. Oscar Arnulfo Romero were already present.
