Renegotiating the contract


June 10, 2016

Tags: favours of the founder of Opus Dei
Since 2008 I have worked full-time for a high tec company providing communications services, technical field services, communications networks etc. to other companies. My assigned client from 2008 onwards was a well-known international pharmaceutics firm. In 2013 this firm started a process to renegotiate their contract with my company. The process took about two years, and in the end, the pharmaceutics firm decided to end the contract with us and contract a different company, for economic reasons. There were two of us engineers assigned to this firm, and as soon as we heard the news we were seriously worried and contacted our area manager to ask what would happen to our jobs. He said he had heard about the termination of the contract, and suggested we should start looking for work as soon as possible. I told my mother what had happened. She is a practising Catholic with a lot of devotion to St. Josemaria Escriva, and she talked to me about him, showed me his books, and gave me a copy of the novena to St. Josemaria, asking me to pray it with great faith, as he had never let her down. I began praying the novena and finding out more about St. Josemaria’s life. I remember with great joy how, on a Saturday, when we don’t work, which was the eighth day of my novena, my wife and I were at home and I got a call from my line manager. She had just been told that our company had decided to make the other engineer redundant but I would be retained and assigned to other clients. As at the time of writing, I am still working for the same company, very happy and grateful for this opportunity to continue to serve.
