Default Successor to Opus Dei founder moves toward beatification

Vatican City, Jun 29, 2012 / 01:02 pm (CNA).- Pope Benedict XVI has approved a decree recognizing the heroic virtues of Bishop Alvaro del Portillo, the successor of St. Josemaria Escriva de Balaguer, founder of Opus Dei.

“Bishop Alvaro is remembered by so many men and women as a priest of peace, loyal to his commitment of love to God, very united to the Church and to the Roman Pontiff,” remarked Bishop Javier Echevarria, current prelate of Opus Dei.

“With love and total generosity he learned to serve St. Josemaria Escriva de Balaguer, his brothers – and later his sons and daughters – in Opus Dei, his relatives, friends and colleagues,” the bishop noted.

“With his preaching he helped hundreds of thousands in the different countries he visited to find happiness in fidelity to Jesus Christ.”
