Alvaro del Portillo to be beatified in Madrid on September 27, 2014
The life of Bishop del Portillo, whom many people call "Don Alvaro", is closely linked to the city of Madrid, where he was born on March 11, 1914, and where he spent his childhood and youth with his parents and 7 siblings. It was also in the capital of Spain that he met St. Josemaria Escrivá and decided to join Opus Dei in 1935. After finishing his civil and ecclesiastical studies, he was ordained in Madrid on June 25, 1944, and he carried out his priestly ministry there until he moved to Rome in 1946. During Don Alvaro's years in Rome, the Holy See entrusted a number of tasks to him, and he carried these out with great dedication. On September 15, 1975, Don Alvaro was elected as St. Josemaría’s first successor. When Opus Dei was established as a personal prelature on November 28, 1982, Pope John Paul II appointed him Prelate of Opus Dei. The Holy Father later ordained him as a bishop on January 6, 1991. Early in the morning of March 23, 1994, God called his good and faithful servant to Himself.

Stichting De Oude Gracht in cooperation with VNB offers 7 different travel arrangements for participation in the ceremony of beatification in Madrid.
