This article deals with Opus dei as it relates to NationStates. For more general information, see the Wikipedia article on this subject.
The Prelature of the Holy Cross and Opus Dei, commonly known as Opus Dei (Latin for "Work of God") or the Work, is a prelature created by the Roman Catholic Church church, composed of a prelate, secular priests, and ordinary people, whose mission is to help spread the Catholic teaching that everyone is called to become a saint and an apostle, and that ordinary life is a path to sanctity.
In Nationstates, the number of supporters is growing. The Roman Catholic Church now accepts the Opus dei as a legitimate form of worship. The prelature itself is starting to gain support with many exsiting Catholics.
