Dora del Hoyo Alonso, whose cause of canonization opened on June 18, 2012, dedicated her life to the work of the home. According to Dora, it was through her own family that she first learned to love caring for the home and to value working hard and well. Her example helped many to value ordinary work as a means of growing closer to God.
Paula Assen, from Australia, speaks about working alongside Dora del Hoyo and the example she gave of love for God and service to those around her in domestic tasks. "She had a lot of faith in the words of St. Josemaria that we have to create homes in a society that's so much against it. And we have to create a family atmosphere... because a lot of people are deprived of that these days."
Dora del Hoyo, whose Cause for her Canonization was begun in 2012, always sought after happiness, the deepest happiness that one can find: the happiness of serving others: God, the Church, and all souls, in every moment. This documentary video offers a summary of her life, and personal testimonies from those who lived and worked with her.
