After the death of Saint Josemaría in 1975, his successor, Blessed Alvaro del Portillo, had an Audience with Pope Paul VI. Referring to the teachings of the founder of Opus Dei, Saint Paul VI asked that all these be carefully collected “because they are now already a treasure which belongs to the whole Church.”
This volume contains the first four Letters of some thirty-eight of a foundational nature which Saint Josemaría Escrivá wrote. Although they were addressed to all members of Opus Dei, they are valuable resources for everyone in the Church.
Letter 1, dated 24 March 1930, on the call to holiness and apostolate in ordinary life.
Letter 2, dated 24 March 1931, on the importance of humility in one’s spiritual life.
Letter 3, dated 9 January 1932, on the apostolic mission of the members of Opus Dei in the middle of the world.
Letter 4, dated 16 July 1933, on proclaiming Christ's teachings through personal apostolate.
