“Wanting Jesus Alone to Shine: Illustrated Biography of St. Josemaria Escriva, the Founder of Opus Dei”

The St. Josemaria Institute is pleased to announce the book release of “Wanting Jesus Alone to Shine: Illustrated Biography of St. Josemaria Escriva, the Founder of Opus Dei.”

“Wanting Jesus Alone to Shine” is a biography of St. Josemaria Escriva, the founder of Opus Dei, illustrated with more than 300 photos, maps, infographics and autograph texts. The authors, Jesús Gil and Enrique Muñiz, offer a biography in which the images allow readers to enter into the life of Saint Josemaria: not only to learn about his experiences intellectually, but also to share in some of the feelings that accompanied these experiences.

“Wanting Jesus Alone to Shine” is based on the book written by Jose Miguel Cejas and designed by Jose Luis Saura on the occasion of the beatification of Josemaria Escriva in 1992. Gil and Muñiz – who collaborated in the beatification book – have revised and updated the text, and have added numerous content, so that it is presented as a new experience of the life of St. Josemaria.
