Come, O Holy Spirit:
enlighten my understanding
to know your commands;
strengthen my heart
against the wiles of the enemy; inflame my will...
I have heard your voice,
and I don't want to harden my heart to resisting,
by saying 'later... tomorrow.'
Nunc coepi! Now!
Lest there be no tomorrow for me!
O, Spirit of truth and wisdom,
Spirit of understanding and counsel,
Spirit of joy and peace!
I want what you want,
I want it because you want it,
I want it as you want it,
I want it when you want it.

June 26th is the feast day of
St. Josemaria Escriva.
Around the world, Masses are celebrated in his honor and everyone is invited!
On this feast day of St Josemaria (June 26th), we give thanks to God for all the favors that he has obtained for us—the big and the small, the ordinary and the extraordinary—that have impacted our lives and the lives of everyone around us.
During the nine days leading up to the liturgical feast of St Josemaria Escriva (June 26th), we will be sharing with you a daily reflection and prayer for families.
Join the St. Josemaria Institute and Mater Dei Tours, November 13-23, 2015, on a pilgrimage to Spain to follow in the footsteps of St Josemaria Escriva.
On February 7, 2015, over 100 guests participated in the St. Josemaria Institute’s 2015 inaugural conference “Pope Francis: His Life and Papacy and the Synod of the Family”, which was held at the Morton Arboretum in Lisle, Illinois. The conference talks are now available on the St. Josemaria Institute Podcast.
As we begin the holy season of Lent, Fr Javier del Castillo invites us in this meditation for Ash Wednesday to reflect on the readings and Gospel of today’s Mass and on the works we are called to fulfill during this time for our conversion: fasting, praying and almsgiving.
On Faith and Reason is a new talk on the St. Josemaria Institute Podcast by Very Rev. Peter Armenio who explains the urgency with which today’s burning issues (marriage, children, life, evolution, suffering, death, etc.) require not only an appeal to supernatural authority but also to science and nature.
The Feast of the Conversion of Saint Paul (January 25) is an appropriate moment to reflect on the conversion of this great apostle and to ask ourselves: What could happen if I convert?
We are happy to announce a new segment on the St. Josemaria Institute Podcast—“Retreats”.
The St. Josemaria Institute invites you to join us for our 2015 inaugural conference with Father Mark Mannion who will speak about Pope Francis’ life and papacy, his teachings on poverty and conversion, and the recent developments of the Synod on the Family.
The St. Josemaria Institute is proud to join the global campaign in support of Saxum in the Holy Land.
