Today on St. Josemaria Escriva’s Feast Day (June 26th), Fr. Javier del Castillo reflects in this new meditation on the patron saint of ordinary life and his 40 years of intercession from heaven.

What you’ll hear:

– Why St. Josemaria said that he would be more useful after his death
– St. Josemaria’s favorite Gospel passage
– How God used footprints in the snow to call St. Josemaria to his vocation
– How St. Josemaria discerned the will of God
– Why St. Josemaria initially became discouraged when he went to London
– How St. Josemaria saw himself as a little child for God


“St. Josemaria was able to percieve the call of God because he prayed.”

“We have to be in dialogue with the Lord all day long.”

“St. Josemaria turned to the Word of God in order to find out how he ought to do the will of God.”

“Sanctity, even though it is impossible in and of itself for us to accomplish by ourselves, when we let God “do,” then it is very much something that we have at our fingertips, but it takes a lot of humility.”

“We have to be small children in our interior life that let their mother and father come to their aid immediately.”

“The call to be holy isn’t just about me, it is about salvation of souls. We are here as soldiers of Christ, as the children of God, who are going to liberate all of creation that is groaning in travail until now. All of creation is waiting for the freedom of the children of God.”
