Some Photos from the Ceremony
Some photos from the opening of Dora del Hoyo's cause of canonization, with remarks by the postulator of her cause.
"Dora loved the Church, the Pope and Opus Dei. and saw her vocation as the most precious gift she could receive from God."
"Being close to Saint Josemaría for so many years taught her many things, and was a spur to unite herself generously to his intentions through prayer and sacrifice."
"The sanctification of ordinary professional work is the nucleus of the spirit of Opus Dei. Dora dedicated her life, with legitimate pride and passion, to her profession, that is, to domestic tasks, in order to create the warm and welcoming envioronment proper to a home."
"We all feel the need for a home that is clean and well-ordered, with a pleasant appearance, where we can enjoy the company of others and where we feel loved and understood."
"The work of those who, in God's sight, dedicate themselves to caring for a home--whether as a housewife or assisting with the housework--gives solidity to the family's structure and contributes effectively to the peace, unity and joy that should reign in each home."
"I find that there are sufficient reasons to begin the process of canonization, which will provide the confirmation that will enable us--we firmly trust--to present Dora del Hoyo as an example and model of holiness recognized by the Church."
