This evening, Pope Francis named Monsignor Fernando Ocáriz Braña Prelate of Opus Dei. The Holy Father confirmed the election of the Prelature's third elective congress on the same day it took place.
This morning in Rome, the process foreseen for the election and naming of the prelate of Opus Dei has begun, with the first plenary meeting of the women’s council of the prelature, called the central Advisory.
Isabel Sánchez is the central Secretary of the Advisory, the women's council that assists the Prelate in governing the Prelature. In this interview she describes the elective process that concludes with the naming of a new Prelate.
The process planned for the election and appointment of the prelate of Opus Dei will begin in Rome on January 21.
