A Relic in the Church of the Addoloratta Alla Pigna in Naples, Italy (September 14, 2019)
Since September 14, a relic of St. Josemaría in the Church of the Addolorata alla Pigna, a parish in the heart of a busy neighborhood in Naples, has been available for public veneration.
The parish priest, Don Vittorio, came to know the message of Opus Dei thanks to some of his parishioners. His growing devotion to its founder led him to have a relic placed in the church so it could be venerated publicly and the saint would become better known.
On September 14, after a Mass celebrated by Archbishop Armando Dini, Archbishop Emeritus of Campobasso-Boiano, the relic was placed near the altar.
