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

Happy Birthday to a Saint

Today is the birthday of St. Josemaria... founder of Opus Dei... A true beautiful person! Aren't all saints! He reminds me a great deal of my grandfather! Its also the birthday of my goddaughter E.G. An interesting fact.. She also has the same Holy Communion day of St. Josemaria... She is a great little girl.. Miss her dearly!

"Meditate on this frequently: I am a Catholic, a child of Christ’s Church. He brought me to birth in a home that is his, without my doing anything to deserve it.My God, how much I owe you!"
The Forge, 16 St.Josemaria
