A week ago I was buying some gates with their accessories at an ironmongers. I paid by credit card and had to show my identity card in the process. I went with a friend and we were in a hurry, so I packed up the accessories myself. The assistants loaded the gates for us and we set off. The next day I had to buy some other items with my card and this time I couldn’t find my identity card. The shop accepted my payment as it was for a small amount and I am a regular customer. I was extremely worried and prayed to St Josemaria and Our Lady to find it, with a little aspiration that people in this country often say – “Ojitos de la Virgen ponmela delante – Eyes of the Blessed Virgin, put it in front of me,” knowing St Josemaria’s great devotion for the Blessed Mother. I searched for my ID card at home, in my purse, in the car and in my friend’s car. I kept praying for it to appear, as it is essential for all sorts of transactions and other matters. In the end, a little discouraged because it was now a week since I lost the ID card, I went back to the ironmongers, and there it was! They gave it to me on the spot, and I give thanks to Saint Josemaria for this favor.
