One day I read the news that the Prelate of Opus Dei was asking for testimonies of favors received through the intercession of Dora del Hoyo. I had no idea who Dora del Hoyo even was.

While Teaching a Class on Ice Cream

I teach baking and confectionary classes at an institute, and I pray to Dora for favors daily, asking for little things, especially because she knows this field well and she always helps me. One time in particular in which I noted her intercession happened when I was teaching a class about ice cream.
