From Opus Dei

"In particular, I greet the university students who are taking part in the international congress organized by the Prelature of Opus Dei.

"Dear friends, you have come to Rome during Holy Week to strengthen your faith and find spiritual enrichment. I thank you for your prayers and affection. Through your presence in the university environment, each of you can carry out what Saint Josemaría Escriva hoped for: 'It is in the midst of the most material things of the earth that we must sanctify ourselves, serving God and all mankind.' ”
