PODCAST | A Reflection on the Anniversary of the Founding of Opus Dei

In this podcast, Fr. Peter Armenio, a priest of Opus Dei, shares how St. Josemaria Escriva founded Opus Dei to build what he calls “a civilization of love” and to bring Jesus Christ, in a new way, into the very heart of the world amid a culture that is contrary to the Gospel.

Fr. Peter tells the story of St. Josemaria’s calling to the priesthood when he was 16 years old, his inspiration for founding Opus Dei on October 2, 1928, and why he believed that the responsibility of extending the Kingdom of God would rest on the shoulders of lay women and men.
