Archive: Who is he?
On August 23, 1932, Saint Josemaria wrote down in his Intimate Notes that all the centers of Opus Dei should have a plaque with the words of Jesus' "new commandment": "that you love one another as I have loved you." The first place this was done was the DYA Residence in Madrid.
July 25 is the feast of Saint James the Apostle. Here is the story of several trips Saint Josemaria made to Santiago de Compostela, where the Apostle's remains are preserved, including his first pilgrimage there in 1938 during the difficult days of the Spanish civil war.
A recent book about Saint Josemaria, The Cremades Plans by Msgr. Javier Cremades (1946-2021), is now available in English and can be downloaded as a free eBook.
