On Saint Josemaria's feast day, Masses are celebrated all over the world... the desert included. In a country that is officially Muslim, populated by over a hundred nationalities, the saint of ordinary life inspires many to keep the fire of their faith alive.
In addition to wars and the refugee crisis, a third element characterizing the migration to the Gulf countries in recent years has been job opportunities. Many foreigners - and in the case of Dubai, more than 70% - have settled there in search of new professional horizons.
Dubai is just one of the seven United Arab Emirates. It’s a place where more than 70% of the population is made up of foreigners. They come from Asia, Europe and America and, affected by the economic crisis in different ways, have abandoned their country to look for new work opportunities. A Muslim country where practicing the Christian faith is a challenge that Christians have been facing for centuries.
Masses of St. Josemaria have been celebrated in more than 100 different locations such as Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria and also in some neighbouring places like St. Anthony of Padua parish Nungua, Accra Ghana.
