Favours obtained through Saint Josemaria's intercession
A wonderful company
J. L. A., Philippines
June 2, 2015I would like to manifest my warm gratitude to St. Josemaria Escriva whose intercession has brought me to a wonderful company. This happened 3 days after praying his nine day novena for work. Everyone is so friendly and makes me feel like I am a part of a huge family.
J. A., Mexico
June 2, 2015I received a favor from Saint Josemaria, when after paying the parking lot and driving away, I reached my office 40 kilometers away and found that I didn’t have my wallet, containing my credit cards and various official identity cards. It was 45 or 50 minutes since I left the parking lot, which is a very busy one. I searched inside my car and checked all my pockets, and went to tell my boss that I’d lost my wallet. He gave me a 200-pesos bill and told me to cancel all my cards and go back to the parking lot to see if anyone had found it. It was then a Friday afternoon at around 4.30, and it took me another 30 or 40 minutes to get back there. All the way I was praying through Saint Josemaria’s intercession, begging that I may recover my wallet and that nobody will use my bank cards. I think I must have prayed more than one complete novena on that trip. As I waited at a red light I had time to check my debit card balance on my mobile, and I saw it was the same as 24 hours before: that gave me confidence to keep hoping I would find my wallet. I was quite calm when I got to the parking lot and asked the man in charge if he had my wallet. He said he would check with the other employees, and 10 minutes later an older man came up to me and took my wallet out of his pocket, saying he’d found it on the ground. I checked and found everything was in order. As a reward I gave him the all the cash I had plus the 200 pesos my boss gave me. I shook his hand and gave him a prayer-card of Blessed Alvaro. I never lost my faith that I would find my wallet, and instead of canceling the bank cards I trusted that Saint Josemaria would restore it to me. Thank God!

May 27, 2015Thank you very much, Saint Josemaria Escriva de Balaguer. Ever since I was small, whenever I needed a favor I have appealed to you for help and you always helped me. Thank you for interceding for me again and obtaining for me the special favor I asked of you. Very many thanks!
Work for a family member
M. D., Spain
May 19, 2015Once again Saint Josemaria has interceded for us in our needs. I began the Novena for work for someone in my family to find a job that he could combine with his family life and his physiotherapy course, and now he has got it. Thank you, Saint Josemaria.
May 19, 2015I am a doctor and I came to Germany alone. Getting a work permit was a huge task. I put my trust in God and prayed hard to St Josemaria. Result: I have residency in Europe, a job for several years and a permit to practice medicine for two years.
A Sore Throat that Impedes My Speaking
A. R., Lithuania
May 19, 2015As I have received a favour from St Josemaria I want to tell about it here because I think that if I have asked him for something and he has granted it to me, it is only fair to put it in writing.
A Job for My Eldest Son
M. F. G., Spain
May 19, 2015I want to thank God, through St Josemaria’s intercession, for granting one of the many favours I have been asking of him for some time now through the Novena for Work. My eldest son, after a long time spent looking for a job, found a job as a salesman and little by little is achieving very good results. What’s more, I can see how committed and responsible he is in his work. I continue to pray for God to give me more faith and trust. Thank you very much, St Josemaria.
Unexpected Exam Result
L. L., Philippines
May 8, 2015Year 2012. I was a fresh graduate then and I together with my co-teachers decided to took the Licensure Examination for Teachers. After the exam we were advised to wait for three months to get the results. Within three months I prayed the prayercard of St. Josemaria. Unexpectedly with the help of St. Josemaria's intercession for us to Our Lord together with the Blessed Virgin Mary we passed the exam. Knowing that I don't have the time to review my notes before the exam but I passed the exam. Much thanks to St. Josemaria most especially to Our Lord. Until now I'm praying the prayer card of him.

Novena for Work
V. G., Brazil

Money to Go Abroad
G. A., Paraguay
May 6, 2015I am grateful for Saint Josemaria’s intercession. I was getting ready to go on a one-week course in another country. I worked out what I would need and found that I did not have enough money. I was very worried because I did not want to take out a loan, and I appealed to Saint Josemaria’s intercession. I checked my bank account and saw that the institution where I work had just paid in a sum of money that they had not paid in previous months, just exactly the amount I needed. I am so grateful for our Lord’s generosity and I turn to Saint Josemaria’s intercession constantly.
April 28, 2015Infinite thanks to St Josemaria for favors received: my nephews and siblings all found jobs.
L. G. M., Argentina
April 28, 2015Ten years have gone by since our son came home from an operation on his head and got straight on his bicycle and when we said maybe he should wait, he retorted, “The operation was on my head, not my feet!” Every day for the past ten years we have thanked God and Saint Josemaria, because thanks to his intercession that operation was a marvelous Miracle. When we took him to the Austral University Hospital in Buenos Aires for tests, we picked up a magazine with a picture of Saint Josemaria, and that very moment we started praying through his intercession for Felipe’s recovery, since the prognosis was very bad indeed. A few days later, on 18-03-2005 he was operated on by Dr. M. in F. Hospital. The outcome was so extraordinary that when Dr M. came out of the theater he could only say “It was a miracle.” Felipe woke up from the anesthetic asking for a fizzy drink as if nothing had happened…
Novena for Work
C. G. K., Argentina
April 21, 2015Ever since I first heard about him, around 1990, Saint Josemaria has brought me closer to Jesus and Mary in my work. I listened to some of his meditations and teachings. I have been sick for two years and undergoing chemo for a rare disease, which very few people in the world suffer from. I thank God that his Will is being done in my life, and I trust in Him with all my strength. Saint Josemaria helps me to say the Holy Rosary every day with our Blessed Mother Mary. I have not been able to work during these two years’ sickness. The favors I would like to share with you, received through Saint Josemaria’s intercession, are: his vital presence in my life ever since I learned about his work; and I prayed for my two sons, who are married with children, and my daughter-in-law, to get jobs, and now they have them. Now I am praying the Novena for Work that he may find a job for me, in my sick and disabled state. I know that God will prepare the right job for me to give glory to His Holy Name.
