After lunch, reading the historical documents      
On Saturday 25 June, the Association of Friends of the Camí de Pallerols de Rialb in Andorra celebrated the traditional Gathering of Saint Josemaría, commemorating the feast of the founder of Opus Dei which is celebrated every 26 June.
The celebration of this X Aplec began at 14:00 with a popular lunch in the hut and fields, owned by Mr. Carles Àlvarez Marfany -friend of the Association- right next to the Oratory of Canólich, nearby de la Borda del Gastó (Fontaneda).
This year, in addition to families from Andorra with their children and other people from Lleida, Barcelona, ​​Girona and other parts of Catalonia, the Consuls of Sant Julià de Lòria, Hbles took part. Josep Majoral and Mireia Codina, with other institutional personalities from Andorra.
At the end of the lunch, some stories were read written by the expeditionaries of 1937 and which are included in the book "Camino de Liberación". The events that took place on the night of December 1 to 2 when St. Josemaría passed through this very place were read. A way of reliving the moments when the escape expedition, in which Saint Josemaría was going, walked — in the first light of day — in the direction of Sant Julià de Lòria, where he arrived at around 9 in the morning on the 2nd. of December.
At 18:00 a video was shown in the Rocafort auditorium, of the Lauredià Culture and Congress Center, in Sant Julià de Lòria, to remember a meeting that Saint Josemaría had at the Brafa Sports Center, in Barcelona, ​​where of questions and answers conveyed the doctrine of the Church with anecdotes and practical advice.

The Mass coincided with the celebration of the new Mass of the new priest of the diocese of Urgell, Fr Jerrick Banzuela Rodríguez, ordained on the 24th in the cathedral of Urgell together with another priest, Alejandro Vargas Moncada. With Fr Jerrick concelebrated Fr Pepe Chisvert, rector of the parish, Fr Xavier Pont, priest of the Prelature of Opus Dei who came from Lleida to join all the acts of the Gathering, and Fr Anto Pallikunnen, a priest from India who attends the church of El Fener in Andorra la Vella. In the presbytery, some seminarians were also present, companions of Fr Jerrick. In total, about 150 people attended the mass.
As a farewell, the relics of St. Josemaría were venerated while those in attendance congratulated the new priest, Fr Jerrick, with obvious signs of affection.
