Honoring Opus Dei

On June 25, a Mass was held in San Antonio honoring Opus Dei, for which Archbishop Jose Gomez served as Texas vicar. A sect within the Catholic Church, it carefully monitors its members' activities, including forbidding them to read hundreds of forbidden books, including The Book of Common Prayer and John Locke's An Essay Concerning Humane Understanding. The Catholic Church originally banned these books, but abandoned the list in 1948; Opus Dei retained it.
