Blessed Guadalupe Ortiz de Landázuri (1916-1975)
The anniversary date of the First Communion of this Spanish researcher and teacher, a lay member of Opus Dei, has become a very special day. The fourth child of a wealthy and pious family in Madrid, Guadalupe received the sacrament on May 18, 1923, at the age of 7. This day marked her childhood from a spiritual point of view. In October 2018, Pope Francis announced the date of her beatification: May 18, 2019, the anniversary of her First Communion.
