PODCAST | “The Way”: An Introduction

Published in 1939, The Way by St. Josemaria Escriva has become a spiritual classic that has been translated to over 40 languages and sold millions of copies worldwide. In this podcast, Fr. Javier del Castillo introduces listeners to The Way: what inspired its content and how it continues to provide spiritual wisdom and counsel to readers today. 

Unlike most spiritual works, St. Josemaria compiled the book to be used as an aid in prayer and it is not intended to be read straight through from cover to cover. When using this book with its original intent in mind, readers can find it to be a useful resource in starting a dialogue with the Lord, making the Gospel relevant to our lives, and leading others to the Truth. 

As you listen to this podcast, you will learn the context in which The Way was written, gain insight into the spirituality of St. Josemaria, reflect on key points written in The Way, and make firm resolutions in responding to the work of the Holy Spirit.
