"Either we learn to find our Lord in ordinary, everyday life, or else we shall never find Him.” Saint Josemaría
"Either we learn to find our Lord in ordinary, everyday life, or else we shall never find Him.”
The Prelate urges us to make these words of Saint Josemaría a reality in our life during Lent: “each day is not just one conversion: it is many conversions."
In his first monthly letter for 2016, the Prelate writes about our Lady's role in the upcoming Year of Mercy.
"Let us show our gratitude to our Holy Father with our deeds and prayer for convoking this special jubilee, a true time of grace for the Church and the world."
Bishop Javier Echevarria this month focuses on the meaning of Advent, "joyful and impatient weeks of preparation for Christmas."
The Prelate writes about the holy souls in purgatory and the last things: “Because of Christ, Christian death has a positive meaning."
A new anniversary of the founding of Opus Dei and Pope Francis' call to assist those who have been forced to flee their homeland are the central topics of this month's letter.
The Prelate reflects on the close tie between the Cross and joy, and asks us to intensify our prayer for the family and the upcoming Synod.
In the context of the Marian year for the family in Opus Dei, the Prelate reflects on the central role of the parents in guiding their children's affective life.
The Prelate reminds us that the first responsibility for educating children in the faith always lies with the parents and asks for our redoubled prayer for the upcoming Synod on the Family.
The Prelate this month continues his reflections on the family. "The earthly journey of Saint Josemaría is filled with his loving teaching that we need to spread constantly the holy atmosphere of the home at Nazareth."
