Where Josemaría Escrivá de Balaguer Celebrated the Old Mass

Edit: some will remember that the founder of The Work, refused to celebrate the New Mass and obediently obtained an Indult so he wouldn't have to.
(Santiago de Chile), Opus Dei will take a further step in the classical form of the Roman rite. Last Sunday, the 5th of August Don Federico Monckeberg, a Chilean priest of the Prelature of the Holy Cross and Opus Dei Prelature in a branch of Santiago de Chile, celebrated the Immemorial Mass of All Ages [Katholisches calls it the "Classical Roman Rite or the Extraordinary Form, which grates]
Father Mönckeberg celebrated Mass at that altar,  where the founder of Opus Dei, St. Josemaria Escriva de Balaguer said Mass on his visit to Chile in 1974.
Since the First Sunday in Advent in 2011 at the Basilica Sant'Eugenio, the parish supervised by Opus Dei in the city of Rome, the Holy Mass is regularly celebrated in both forms of the Roman rite.
On 11 February 2012 Curial Bishop Juan Ignacio Arrieta Ochoa de Chinchetru,  gave the secretary of the Pontifical Council for Legislative Texts, who is also a member of Opus Dei, in the seminary of the Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter in Wigratzbad, the Lower Orders and subdiaconate in the Roman Rite of the Catholic Church.
