"Each day be conscious of your duty to be a saint. A saint! And that doesn't mean doing strange things. It means a daily struggle in the interior life and in heroically fulfilling your duty right through to the end.”
Maria Requena, an Associate member of Opus Dei, died last August at the age of 44, a victim of cancer. Her life as a nurse, dedicated to providing palliative care for terminal patients, is a source of inspiration for many people.
