Josemaria Escriva. Founder of Opus Dei

A grant

I have been praying to God through St. Josemaria’s intercession for some time to get a scholarship in an important institution which offered the chance of a challenging career. In 2010 I applied to it without success. I carried on praying and in 2015 sent an application for a fresh chance. At the start I was turned down – the panel was against me and objected to certain points in my application. I began saying one novena after another to St. Josemaria to obtain the scholarship, and made a new attempt, writing an appeal to be reconsidered. On the fourth day of my seventh novena, the feast of the Visitation, I received an e-mail telling me I had been awarded the scholarship. Thank you, St. Josemaria!
