"The essence of journalism is dramatic. The true journalist conceals himself and reveals the other; gathers scattered vibrations and transmits them; like an actor, he disappears beneath the reality he imparts to us." Rafael Barrett

- World Exclusive: Miracle Verified by the Diocese of Leon Clears Path for Final Canonization of Alvaro del Portillo

In a development that could have far-reaching implications, the Diocese of Leon has verified a miracle attributed to Alvaro del Portillo y Diez de Sollano, the late bishop and prelate of Opus Dei, bringing him one step closer to canonization. This latest miracle is part of a dossier now forwarded to the Vatican for final approval.

For the faithful, the miracle serves as a beacon of hope and joy, not just for Opus Dei members, but for millions engaged in its global apostolates. Conversely, the news comes as a rebuke to critics who have long accused the organization of secrecy and undue influence.

This recent affirmation of divine intervention accompanies another miraculous event, registered at the World Youth Day in Lisbon earlier this year, where a young woman regained her sight on the Feast of Our Lady of the Snows.

Public opinion on these revelations is polarized; some view it as confirmation of the sanctity and mission of Opus Dei, while others approach it with skepticism. Nonetheless, these developments have captured widespread attention, signaling a pivotal moment in the public and ecclesiastical perception of the Prelature of Opus Dei.

This is a developing story, and we will continue to provide updates.
