On Thursday, October 6, 1932, while St Josemaria Escriva was praying in the chapel of Saint John of the Cross during his retreat at the Discalced Carmelite monastery in Segovia, he was for the first time inwardly moved to invoke the three archangels and the three apostles Saints Michael, Gabriel, and Raphael, and Saints Peter, Paul, and John. From that moment on he considered them the patrons of the different fields of apostolate that would make up Opus Dei.
For the tenth anniversary of the opening of the Cultural Center Harmica, an Opus Dei center in Zagreb, Croatia, a conference was organized on the topic “The Family in the Teaching of Saint Josemaria”.
St Josemaría Conference is a half-day event marking 50 years that the message of St Josemaría has been lived in Australia.
When asked about the future of Opus Dei, Saint Josemaria says, "Opus Dei has just one thing, the desire to fulfill God's will through our ordinary work...If we're humble and don't stray from our goal, and if we're contemplatives in the street and the market-place, everything will go well."
During the week of February 7th, CatholicTV will air the documentary 'Opus Dei: Decoding God’s Work'.
