Saint Josemaría Newsletter: Discovering God in the Family
The Amoris Laetitia Family Year convoked by Pope Francis will close on 26 June 2022, with the 10th World Meeting of Families in Rome.
“Parents are called to cooperate with the Holy Spirit”
In national life there are two things which are really essential: the laws concerning marriage and the laws to do with education. In these areas God's sons have to stand firm and fight with toughness and fairness, for the sake of all mankind. (The Forge, 104)
Family Traditions: The Annual "Crespillos"
Knowing how to be creative with what one has at home: perhaps this example could serve as inspiration. Every year on the "Friday of Sorrows" (the Friday before Palm Sunday), the mother of Saint Josemaría, Dolores Escrivá, used to prepare a special dessert called "crespillos". It was a simple dessert that she would only make on that day, and thus the family would look forward to it. The recipe is easy to follow and inexpensive, and makes for a tasty and original dessert for your family.
I Came Across Her Prayer Card
I am very impressed with Dora. About three weeks ago, I came across her prayer card in a chapel and I said to myself, "If I feel like I'm 'in a hole' for how bad I feel, then what could be better than to pray to Dora 'del Hoyo' (Spanish for 'of the hole')." I even started to use her name as a password, to remind myself to pray to her.
