Feast Day

June 26th

Since the fourth century, Feast Days commemorating the saints have been celebrated throughout the liturgical year to provide the faithful with examples of “those who have suffered and have been glorified with Christ.” (CCC, 1173)  The Church puts forward the saints “to the faithful as examples who draw all men to the Father through Christ, and through their merits she [the Church] begs for God’s favors.” (CCC, 1173)

On June 26th, the Church celebrates the liturgical feast day of St. Josemaria Escriva.

St. Josemaria died in Rome on June 26, 1975 and was canonized by Pope St. John Paul II on October 6, 2002.  Since his death, and especially since his canonization, Masses, which are the “principal sacramental celebration of the Church”, have been celebrated around the world attended by the growing number of people who have discovered through his message the joy of finding God and living out their Christian vocation in middle of the world.  Because of his life and message, the feast day of St. Josemaria in particular reminds us that God calls each of us to be saints, to be holy.
