Solemn Mass honouring St Josemaría Escrivá on Monday 26 June 2017 at 8pm

On Monday 26 June, Fr Justin Gillespie, Opus Dei's vicar for Ireland celebrated a Solemn Mass in Our Lady Queen of Peace - on the Feastday of St Josemaría Escrivá, Founder of Opus Dei, who died on that day in 1975.

A large congregation, which included many families with young children, braved the rain to honour St Josemaría. One parishioner commented that he had arrived for the Mass, quite tired from work, and that the beauty of the liturgy had lifted both his energies and his spirit.
 
 
The homily given by Fr Justin can be downloaded below.

We are very grateful to the Religious Sisters of Charity for allowing us to use their beautiful chapel.
 
We wished to honour Our Lord in the Blessed Eucharist and live out these words of St John Paul II:

Our faith in the God who took flesh in order to become our companion along the way needs to be everywhere proclaimed, especially in our streets and homes, as an expression of our grateful love and as an inexhaustible source of blessings. (Mane nobiscum Domine, 7 October 2004, no. 18)

What does Jesus do when he walks with us? Louder! First: he helps us. He leads us! Very good. He walks with us, he helps us, he leads us and he teaches us to journey on. [...]
