One day in 2010 my mother called me, very excited. “Lulú, now I know who we have to pray to for a boyfriend for you: Tomás Alvira and Paquita Dominguez!”

Tomás Alvira’s first meeting with St. Josemaría

Tomás Alvira’s first meeting with St. Josemaría

The first meeting between Tomás Alvira and the Founder of Opus Dei took place during a very difficult time, as the civil war had broken out little more than a year before. It occurred in Madrid, in the midst of a religious persecution that had already produced many martyrs. Tomás used to go to the house of an old friend from the Chemistry Faculty of Saragossa, Josémaría Albareda.
