Opus Dei ("Work of God" in Latin) is a personal prelature of the Catholic Church whose purpose is to contribute to the evangelizing mission of the Church. Specifically, Opus Dei seeks to spread the universal call to holiness and the sanctifying value of ordinary work. St. Josemaría affirmed that work is "an opportunity to develop one's personality. It is a bond of union with others...a means of aiding in...the progress of all humanity" (Christ Is Passing By, no. 47). As a consequence of this vision, the University of Navarra sees work well done and attention to detail as core values. The University of Navarra, which owes its development to the work of many individuals, some belonging to Opus Dei and others not, promotes its aims in an environment of freedom and respect for the religious beliefs, political ideas and opinions of professors and students.
