Who Was He?

This 7-minute video describes the life of Saint Josemaría Escrivá, who spread the call to holiness in daily life and was called the "saint of the ordinary" by John Paul II. "We have to be contemplative souls in the middle of the world, who strive to turn our work into prayer," he often said. "Married people, single people, workers, intellectuals, farmers... right where they are can and should be good children of God."

Saint Josemaría Escrivá
"I dream — and the dream has come true — of multitudes of God’s children, sanctifying themselves as ordinary citizens, sharing the ambitions and endeavours of their colleagues and friends.”
