In the Cathedral of Guatemala City (June 26, 2019)

At the end of the Mass for the feast of St. Josemaria, on June 26, the Apostolic Administrator of the Archdiocese of Santiago, Guatemala, Bishop Raul Antonio Martinez, blessed a painting of St. Josemaria that was placed in the right-hand nave of the cathedral for the veneration of the faithful, along with portraits of other 20th century saints, including St. John Paul II and St. Teresa of Calcutta. The artist is the Mexican painter Arturo Guerrero.

In blessing the painting, the bishop referred to St. Josemaría’s stay in Guatemala in February 1975 and the widespread devotion to the saint throughout the country.
