This documentary tells the story of St Josemaria, the “saint of the ordinary” and the founder of Opus Dei, and how his message has inspired people of all walks of life to find meaning in their everyday activities, seeing them as a way of serving others.
Talking to God
Following Pope Francis' teachings, we offer some quotations from St. Josemaria about marriage and how husband and wife can ensure that their love always stays as young and joyful as it was on the first day.
Saint Josemaria Escriva was born in Barbastro, Spain, on 9 January 1902. He was ordained to the priesthood in Saragossa on 28 March 1925. On 2 October 1928, by divine inspiration, he founded Opus Dei.

“I have gained so much from this pilgrimage than from many camps and doctrine classes” said Jerome, a university student from Taiwan. He joined the WYD in Krakow and through it, he discovered the real meaning of a pilgrimage and shared the joy of being close to God with other young people from Hong Kong, Macau, Korea and other countries.
Talking to God
Rest means recuperation: to gain strength, form ideals and make plans. In other words it means a change of occupation, so that you can come back later with a new impetus to your daily job.
Favours obtained through Saint Josemaria's intercession
I would like to testify that, thank God, through St Josemaria’s intercession, when we finished a novena my daughter got the job she was praying for so much. Blessed and praised be Thou O Lord for hearing my prayer!
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 spent about three years looking for work, but unsuccessfully. On the internet I found the novena to St. Joseph and one to St. Josemaria. After less than a month of praying, I obtained the job I wanted.
