August 18, 1938

Over the years St Josemaría directed many spiritual retreats for priests, religious, men and women and young people. On this date he began giving a retreat to the nuns of the Vitoria Episcopal Residence in Spain. St Josemaría’s palpable faith in the Real Presence made a deep impression on them, and they remembered it years later. In the course of the retreat they heard him say aloud, “Jesus, I am crazy with love. Make these nuns also go crazy with love for You.”
