I was helping an elderly friend to apply for an official document in a government office. Since I had applied the week before, it should not have been a problem. However, since my friend was to travel that very evening, and would therefore not be in a position to retrieve his document, it was important to ensure that I would be the one to collect it when it was ready. I entrusted this intention to St. Josemaria
I had secured an assistant professor of sociology position less than a year after graduating with my doctoral degree. I was extremely gracious and recognized God's favor in my life. That same year God blessed me with a baby boy and as you can imagine I was blissful about the double blessing.
