Your duty is to sanctify yourself. Yes, even you. Who thinks that this task is only for priests and religious? To everyone, without exception, our Lord said: Be ye perfect, as my heavenly Father is perfect. St. Josemaria

A Saints Love for Our Blessed Mother

I have come to have a better understanding of my "grandfather St.JoseMaria". (The reason for the grandfather, he reminds me very much of my grandfather Enrique, Spaniard look and the sweet smile!)
He has this love for Our Blessed Mother, that just makes one smile and you can sense his love for Her!

“We have to love the Blessed Virgin Mary more. We will never love her enough. Love her a lot!” is Saint Josemaría’s advice at The Forge, n. 527

He established the custom of placing in each room of each Opus Dei center a simple and artistically tasteful image of our Lady. He taught to give a direct glance towards it, and to give our Blessed Mother an affectionate interior prayer of greeting, whenever we enter or leave a room.
