New Anniversary of Canonization

Saint Josemaria was canonized on October 6, 2002. Here is the address Pope John Paul II gave the next day, a powerful summary of the founder's life and message.

Saint Josemaría Escrivá
"God is not removing you from your environment. He is not taking you away from the world, or from your condition in life, or from your noble human ambitions, or from your professional work ... But he wants you to be a saint - right there!”
