Pilar Bellosillo was a woman unconditionally devoted to the service of God in the Church, especially in lay ecclesiastical institutions, in which she took on many different responsibilities.
Her main concern was the issue of women in society and in the Church. She also worked actively for ecumenism and all that amounted to progress in dialogue and reconciliation.
She served as WUCWO President from 1961 to 1974. We are now promoting her cause for beatification.
Lord God and our Father, we thank you for the fruitful life of Pilar Bellosillo, for her testimony of dedication to the cause of the Gospel, for her love for the Church, and for her dedicated and important work for the path of renewal in the spirit of the Second Vatican Council.
We thank you for the impetus she gave to the Church's laity and for her constant commitment to the promotion of women.
Trusting in her intercession, we put in your hands the grace we ask you to grant us. Make us, too, courageous and committed witnesses of the faith. We ask this through Jesus Christ our Lord.
