  • "Holy Spouses, Holy Families" - Opus Dei
    communion of love in the Trinity Every married couple is given a vocation to live their love forever in a mutual and complete gift of self to renew the face of the earth with children who are the fruits of their love and the precious love of our Creator Married love is forever and cannot be dissolved because it is the sign of God s own covenant with creation The Church s mission is to continue God s family plan for creation to call men and women from every nation and people to form a single family of God united in his Son Jesus So that is why the Church will always take these matters of human sexuality marriage family and children so seriously That is why the litany of the Church s great martyrs includes countless men and women who died defending the Church s doctrines and practices Agnes and Cecilia in ancient Rome Thomas More and Charles Lwanga the Franciscans martyred in Georgia during the evangelisation of the New World And there were many more The family crisis Some of my brother bishops have remarked on the sense of urgency some even call it anxiety that has been felt during this Synod The somber mood is reflected in the working document that has formed the basis for our discussions during these past three weeks Pope Francis has spoken often of the profound cultural crisis facing the family And there is a sense in this Synod that the family as we know it is in danger of disappearing threatened by forces that are economic cultural and ideological At the root of the family crisis is a crisis of confidence in God a loss of the sense that he is our Father and Creator and that he has a plan a dream for his creation a plan for our lives The family today is threatened by the same anthropocentric and technocratic mentality that Pope Francis warns about in Laudato Si his encyclical on creation This mentality rejects the realities of creation and human nature Everything nature the human body and mind social institutions is is seen as so much raw material to be engineered using technology medicine even law and public policy What the Pope calls the technocratic paradigm underlies the existential threats that confront human life and the family today from artificial contraception and embryonic experimentation to the surgical manipulations of femininity and masculinity required for transgenderism to the redefinition of marriage and the forced sterilisation and abortion policies prevalent in some parts of the world The way forward In confronting this broad cultural crisis of the family the Church needs to proclaim once more the beautiful truth about the human person and God s loving plan for creation and the family The best way to restore men and women to their rightful place is to speak once more of the figure of a Father who creates and who alone owns the world Pope Francis writes in Laudato Si

  • Stories about Saint John Paul II - Opus Dei
    be able to leave the Vatican Nevertheless on the 17th Don Alvaro visited his friend And what a surprise when we were told just outside the patient s room that we would have to wait in a corner with other people because the Pope had arrived and the exit on that floor was momentarily blocked off But my surprise was even greater when as we were leaving the patient s room John Paul II turned to Don Alvaro and embraced him Don Alvaro was profoundly moved and as he filially kissed the pontiff s ring he noticed that he was holding a rosary in his hand That was the first of many many meetings because after that I had the opportunity to see the new Pope more frequently than we could ever have imagined Do you remember the first official audience A few days after that very moving encounter in the Gemelli Hospital on October 28 John Paul II received him for the first time in an informal audience On that occasion Don Alvaro mentioned that due to the vacant see because of the unexpected death of the revered John Paul I it had not been possible to write the letter that the Holy Father intended to send for the fiftieth anniversary of the founding of Opus Dei And John Paul II responded Then I ll write it Pope Wojtyła was very anxious to give Opus Dei a canonical framework And in a few years the Work was erected as a personal prelature How did you reach that very important milestone Paul VI and John Paul I had already expressed the desire to bring to completion the legal journey of the Work but the Lord called them to himself before they could address the question definitively John Paul II decided to take an interest in it from the beginning He entrusted the matter to Cardinal Sebastian Baggio Prefect of the Congregation for Bishops and a joint commission was appointed made up of canon law experts from the Holy See and from Opus Dei The Holy Father followed all the steps attentively and kept an eye on the details While the technical and canonical aspects are well known I would like to highlight the paternal concern that the Pope showed during the whole process without overriding or influencing the canon lawyers who worked with complete freedom in their research and in addressing every question that arose Not all the bishops were in agreement with the creation of this new entity in the Church That is true but the Pope proved yet again to be very careful prudent and paternal in addressing the difficulties caused by the objections of several bishops which were absolutely understandable in the context of dealing with a new canonical scenario He himself took responsibility for these objections and made arrangements for them to be studied and adequately resolved We mentioned certain criticisms of Opus Dei but not even John Paul II was spared such attacks Did you have a chance to talk with the Pope about them The Holy Father knew how to take up his cross but at the same time he was very determined and kept going forward seeking the good of the Church Let me tell you a revealing anecdote on one occasion Don Alvaro took part in the recitation of the Rosary with the Pope John Paul II always prayed with others and on that occasion Mother Teresa of Calcutta was also present Afterwards the Pope introduced Don Alvaro to her and she thanked him very warmly for the help offered to her sisters by the priests of the Work in various parts of the world Then John Paul II asked her half seriously and half facetiously Mother why do they criticize the Pope and Opus Dei while everyone speaks well of Mother Teresa And she replied with great sincerity Pray for me that I may be humble You emphasized that John Paul II followed Opus Dei closely Does this mean that he gave you instructions or that he intervened in the government of the Work His most important intervention was obviously the erection of Opus Dei as a personal prelature whereby he placed this portion of the Church made up of laymen and priests men and women of every class and social condition under the jurisdiction of a prelate so that together with its priests it might better serve the Universal Church in communion with the local Churches Besides that the Pope suggested several apostolic ideas to the Prelate since he was quite convinced of the efficacy of the personal apostolate of every member of the Work For example with great conviction Pope John Paul II promoted the international seminary Sedes Sapientiae in Rome with its objective of forming priests who could in time become directors of formation in seminaries in various countries especially those that had just acquired freedom after the period of Soviet domination For a new evangelization And not just in the East In 1981 if not before John Paul was already speaking about a new evangelization and in 1985 during the synod of bishops he set this pastoral priority in motion above all in the countries of Eastern Europe and North America where the symptoms of secularism were growing at an alarming rate Don Alvaro supported this program and as early as December 25 of that same year he wrote a pastoral letter to the faithful of the Prelature urging them to cooperate in every way possible with this task which was especially necessary in the countries of old Europe in the United States and in Canada In this way my predecessor obeyed the Pope promptly and he in turn never left us without his support Indeed John Paul II continued to encourage Don Alvaro and also me later on until the end of his life to persevere in the mission of evangelizing while fully respecting the spirit of the Work Don Alvaro left that audience greatly reassured
