Saint Josemaria, a pilgrim at Fatima

Saint Josemaría visited Portugal frequently, and never omitted a stop at Fatima. On one of those occasions, April 14, 1970, as he arrived on Portuguese soil, he gave the reason for his trip. “I am praying all day long, trying to speak continuously with God, taking our Lady as my intercessor, since she is all-powerful in her supplication. I have made these journeys in the simple, joyous spirit of a pilgrim of old.” Tags: Our Lady

Jerusalem: the Holy Sepulcher

J. Gil

There are many places in the Holy Land which preserve the record of our Lord’s life on earth and these places have been rightly venerated down through the centuries. However, none can compare with the Holy Sepulcher, the very place where the central event of our faith took place. As St Paul told the faithful at Corinth very early on, “If Christ has not been raised, then our preaching is in vain and your faith is in vain” (I Cor 15:14).

St Josemaria’s book The Way of the Cross – Foreword

Msgr. Alvaro del Portillo

“Enter into the wounds of Christ Crucified.” When Monsignor Josemaría Escrivá de Balaguer proposed this way, to those who asked him for advice on how to deepen their interior life, he was doing no more than pass on his own experience, pointing out the short cut he had been using throughout his life, and which led him to the highest peaks of spiritual life.
