The Prelate received a manuscript greeting from the Holy Father for his 80th birthday

This is a translation of the handwritten greeting reproduced on one of the first pages of this issue, sent to Bishop Javier Echevarría by Benedict XVI, for his 80th birthday:

To our Venerable Brother Bishop
Javier Echevarría
Prelate of Opus Dei

On his 80th birthday, I send warm congratulations and, recalling his long and zealous ministry in the service of the Gospel and the Church, I invoke upon him, through the intercession of the Blessed Virgin and of St. Josemaría Escrivá, a new outpouring of heavenly gifts, while I cordially impart a special apostolic Blessing, which I gladly extend to the people entrusted to his pastoral care.

From the Vatican, June 14, 2012.
