Message of the day

“ a grave obligation for us”

You pray, you deny yourself, you work in a thousand apostolic activities, but you don't study. You are useless then unless you change. Study--professional training of whatever type it be--is a grave obligation for us. (The Way, 334)

An hour of study, for a modern apostle, is an hour of prayer. (The Way, 335)

If you are to serve God with your mind, to study is a grave obligation for you. (The Way, 336)

You frequent the Sacraments, you pray, you are chaste, but you do not study. Don't tell me you're good: you're only 'goodish'. (The Way, 337)

Saint Josemaría Escrivá
"Your work must become a personal prayer, must become a real conversation with Our Father in heaven.”
SAINT JOSEMARÍA, Founder of Opus Dei
