"It is exciting that these meditations will now be available in English. They bring alive the explosive and transforming Love contained in the Gospels."
-Translator Justin Gillespie
St. Josemaria Escriva was born in Spain in 1902 and was ordained a priest in 1926. In 1928, he received the divine inspiration to found Opus Dei, a Catholic organization of lay people and priests who try to grow close to God through their ordinary lives. St. Josemaria died in 1975 and was canonized by Pope John Paul II in 2002.
