Monsignor Fernando Ocáriz is taking advantage of the summer to make several pastoral trips. His first stop was Barcelona. On Monday the 26th he visited the Basilica of Our Lady of Mercy in the morning – as Saint Josemaría so often did. And in the afternoon he met with two groups of faithful of Opus Dei, while observing all the required health measures.
The rector of the Basilica, Father Fermín Delgado, greeted the Prelate when he arrived. They went together to pray before the statue of Our Lady and before the bas-relief in which Saint Josemaría is depicted as praying at the feet of Our Lady of Mercy.
Monsignor Ocáriz wrote these words in the visitor’s book: “With great joy, I have come to pray to Our Lady of Mercy, uniting myself to Saint Josemaría prayer and intentions when he was here.”
