"Blaze a trail ..."
The St. Josemaria Institute was founded in 2006 to promote the life and teachings of St. Josemaria Escriva, a Spanish priest who founded Opus Dei and developed a spirituality through which people can form personal friendships with God through their everyday lives in the midst of the world.
“Don’t let your life be sterile. Be useful. Blaze a trail. Shine forth with the light of your faith and of your love.” (The Way, 1)
