Pope Paul VI Letter to St Josemaria

Pablo VI

Tags: Opus Dei, Pope Paul VI
Part of a letter written by the Holy Father, Pope Paul VI, to Msgr Josemaria Escriva, in 1964:

“In your words we can see the vibrancy of the ardent, generous spirit of the whole Institution, which was born in our times as an expression of the perennial youthfulness of the Church (…). We contemplate with paternal satisfaction how much Opus Dei has done and is doing for the Kingdom of God; the desire to do good which drives it; the burning love for the Church and her visible Head which distinguishes it; and the ardent zeal for souls which impels it along the arduous and difficult paths of an apostolate of presence and witness in all sectors of contemporary society.”

Quoted in Tiempo de Caminar, Ana Sastre, p. 484.
