St. Josemaría Escrivá: Finding God in Daily Life
Posted on June 26, 2020 by Catholicism Pure & Simple
Today is the feastday of the founder of Opus Dei, whose full name is St Josemaría Escrivá de Balaguer. He is the saint of everyday holiness and has been called “the saint of ordinary life” for his message that holiness and sainthood are attainable by all the faithful. St. Josemaría taught that such everyday holiness could allow countless people to meet God right where they were.

reblog:    “His gentle ever-present mystery”

St Josemaría Escrivá de Balaguer brought to humanity a precious gift by his living example expressing God’s will through him as an ordinary man but with an extraordinary soul which was in alignment and affixed to God’s Holy Spirit. This is what I’ve experienced myself when we allow God to speak to us in little things, where usually we are part of the clamor and background noise of this fallen world becoming caught up in the ways of the world, we lose sight of God’s presence in our personal lives; His gentle ever-present mystery of this world full of miracles that most people are unfortunately not seeing or hearing, and in essence “not seeing the forest for the trees,” running blind, as they get pulled into the vortex of deception and tumultuous conflict where all things tend to vie for their own survival only, even though all is vanity and futile without the life sustainer Jesus Christ, who is the only pathway to the door we must truly want to find and enter through into our eternal lives with God the Father. This is by no means an easy road to travel, but, the truth is it’s not an impossible journey, because, we always have the shining hope and true guidance of Jesus Christ who is the way the path and the life! Amen.

2. Don’t waste time
