Madrid and St Josemaria

For St Josemaria, Madrid was the place where he found God’s will for his life.

Finally there is a selection of texts around the same themes. The tours are close to where Pope Benedict XVI will be during the WYD. Tags: Youth, Madrid, Josemaria Escriva

By John Wauck. In an interview before the premiere of "There be Dragons", Joffé told a reporter what he had taken away from his encounter with a modern-day saint: “It’s wrong to imagine a saint as a kind of Superman, a sort of ‘Super-Christian,’ who flies around in his cloak and makes everything come right!
