November 18 is the 2nd World Day of the Poor, convoked by Pope Francis. Here are ten quotes from Saint Josemaria about seeing Christ in the poor and loving and serving them.
In his homily on June 26 at the Mass in St. Patrick's Cathedral in New York for the feast of Saint Josemaria, Cardinal Dolan described Opus Dei's founder as "the poet of the universal call to holiness."
In 1971, Saint Josemaria decided to consecrate Opus Dei to the Holy Spirit, realizing how much the Church needed all her members to be holy. He himself composed the prayer of consecration, which is renewed in all Opus Dei centers every year.
