Catechetical Trips


Following the close of the Second Vatican Council, St Josemaria engaged in catechetical activity preaching the faithful implementation of the Council’s teaching. He not only received numerous visitors in Rome, but also traveled widely around Europe and America (1970, 1972, 1974, 1975). These journeys enabled him to meet with thousands of people to whom he strove to transmit the love (that filled his own heart) for Christ, the Virgin Mary, and the Church. All this required a considerable effort on his part – he bore the physical marks of a long life, full of hard work – but he did not hesitate in offering all his energy for the Church and for souls.
