In his letter dated 26 October 2018, Monsignor Fernando Ocáriz tells us that Guadalupe will be the first lay person in Opus Dei raised to the altars.
The Prelate encourages "all members of the Work, cooperators and those who take part in its apostolic work to generously support this desire of the Pope, and to extend this invitation to many other friends, beseeching our Mother Holy Mary and Saint Michael the Archangel to protect the Church."
On June 9, 2018, the decree was promulgated on the miraculous cure attributed to the intercession of Venerable Guadalupe Ortiz. On that same day, Monsignor Fernando Ocáriz sent this letter to the faithful of Opus Dei.
The formation offered in Opus Dei is also addressed to young people, so that "they may be, now and for the rest of their lives, Christian leaven in families, jobs, and the whole of the immense field of human life in the middle of the world."
