20 Years A Saint

Aussies celebrate 20 years since the canonisation of St Josemaria Escriva by sharing their memories

On 6 October 2002, St John Paul II canonised St Josemaria Escriva in front of an estimated 300,000 people from around the world. There in St Peter’s Square, there were lay pilgrims along with cardinals, hundreds of bishops, general superiors of many orders and religious congregations, and representatives of various Catholic groups.

20 years later, some of the Aussies who travelled to Rome for the occasion speak in this video - about their experiences, memories and how the teachings of St Josemaria are present in their lives.
