Papal greetings to university students in Opus Dei conference

Catholic World News - March 31, 2010

At the conclusion of his regular weekly public audience on March 31, Pope Benedict XVI offered his greetings to university students who have gathered in Rome for an annual event sponsored by Opus Dei. The Holy Father encouraged the group to pursue what St. Josemaria Escria, the founder of Opus Dei, described as "a breadth of vision and a vigorous endeavour to study more deeply the things that are permanently alive and unchanged in Catholic orthodoxy." About 4,000 students are participating in the conference, which is organized each year at Easter.
