At 12:45 the Mass was celebrated by Fr. Francesc Montuenga. In the homily he glossed over the verses composed by the monk of Montserrat, Oriol Diví, noting that just as saint Josemaría spent a night of darkness and mourning in Pallerols, may the Virgin Mary move in peace and consolation, too -when we ascend in Pallerols- we receive peace from the Virgin in our tribulations, and -full of the joy received- we will know how to give to others the flowers of holiness that we will spread all over the world: the peace and joy of God.
The verses of the monk Oriol Diví, translated into English, read as follows:
Between faith and remorse
making way for darkness and mourning
in Pallerols a rose
he changed his anguish into consolation.
See St. Josemaría
the Virgin in such a precious gift
that the path of our life
give flowers of holiness.
An endearing party in an atmosphere of peace and serenity that the Virgin Mary gives us whenever we go to Pallerols.
