Young People in Dialogue with St. Josemaría

On January 29 a presentation of the historical-critical edition of Conversations with Msgr. Escrivá was held. Conversations, first published in 1968, contains a homily and seven interviews granted by the founder of Opus Dei to Le Figaro, The New York Times, Time magazine, L’Osservatore della Domenica, and three Spanish magazines (Telva, Gaceta Universitaria and Palabra). Some 350,000 copies of the book have now been published in a dozen languages. In the summer of 2012, the historical-critical edition was published by Rialp.

The presentation at the University of Navarra’s Madrid campus was attended by over 30 well-known journalists. With the help of previously filmed testimonials, a virtual round table was held on the future of communications, and on the message of St. Josemaría. The ceremony was organized by the School of Communications at the University of Navarra, in conjunction with the Information Office of Opus Dei and Rialp publishers.

Fr. José Luis Illanes, in charge of the book’s publication, briefly sketched the origin of the project. He said that it “forms part of the edition of the complete works of St. Josemaría Escrivá, and seeks to provide a cultural and ecclesiological framework for a deeper grasp of the content of the interviews.”

The journalist Pilar Urbano was the director of the presentation, and introduced those taking part. These were, in alphabetical order: José Apezarena, Javier Bardaji, Thomas Burns Marañón, Pilar Cambra, Manuel Campo Vidal, Juan Pablo Colmenarejo, Jorge del Corral, Gonzalo del Prado, Gustavo Entrala, Iñaki Gabilondo, Andres Garrigó, Ana Gil, Elsa Gonzalez, Noelia Gorbea, Mónica Herrero, Luis Infante, José María Irujo, Juan Kindelán, Fernando Lázaro, Miguel Ángel Liso, Esteban López Escobar, Joaquín Luna, Jesús Martínez de Rioja, Mercedes Montero, Martín Mucha, Joaquín Navarro Valls, Covadonga O’Shea, Ramón Pérez Maura, Ramón Pi, Pedro J. Ramírez, Helena Resano, Carmen Rigalt, Arturo San Agustín, Alfonso Sánchez-Tabernero, Manuel Ventero, Germán Yanke and Juan Yeregui.

The contributions of all of them are available on the Internet, at the blog conversacionescon.es.
