Message of the day

“Wear on your breast the holy scapular of Carmel”

Wear on your breast the holy scapular of Carmel. There are many excellent Marian devotions, but few are so deep- rooted among the faithful, and have received so many blessings from the Popes. Besides, how maternal this sabbatine privilege is! (The Way, 500)

When you were asked which picture of our Lady aroused your devotion most, and you answered--with the air of long experience--'all of them', I realized that you were a good son: that is why you are equally moved--'they make me fall in love', you said--by all the pictures of your Mother. (The Way, 501)

Mary, teacher of prayer ...

Saint Josemaría Escrivá
"God calls us through what happens during our day: through the suffering and happiness of the people we live with, through the human interests of our colleagues and the things that make up our family life.”
SAINT JOSEMARÍA, Founder of Opus Dei
