Like the spiritual classic The Way, Furrow is St Josemaria Escriva’s second collection of short points for personal reflection and mental prayer.

This volume consists of 1000 points—a few sentences each—that bring together the human and the divine aspects of Christian perfection, which are intended to help Christians to work the ground, to plow furrows, in preparation for the soul’s reception of the seeds of the Word.

“My reader and friend, let me help your soul contemplate the virtues of man, for grace works upon nature. But do not forget that these considerations of mine, though they may seem very human to you, must be priestly as well, since I have written them for you and for myself—and I have put them into practice too—before God. I ask Our Lord that these pages may be of use for us. May we profit by them and be moved by them so that in our lives our deeds may leave behind a deep and fertile furrow.”
