Pope Cites Beatification of Opus Dei Laywoman

Maria Guadalupe Ortiz de Landazuri Beatified May 18 in Madrid

“Beatified yesterday in Madrid was Maria Guadalupe Ortiz de Landazuri, lay faithful of the Opus Dei, who served brothers with joy, combining the teaching and the proclamation of the Gospel,” Pope Francis said May 19, 2019, after praying the Regina Coeli with the crowds in St. Peter’s Square. “Her witness is an example for Christian women committed in the social realm and in scientific research.  Let us applaud, all together, the new Blessed!”
