Favours obtained through Saint Josemaria's intercession
February 10, 2017I 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. These saints never let us down. Thank you, God!
February 10, 2017I 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 carried on praying and in 2015 sent an application for a fresh chance. At the start I was turned down – the panel was against me and objected to certain points in my application. I began saying one novena after another to St. Josemaria to obtain the scholarship, and made a new attempt, writing an appeal to be reconsidered. On the fourth day of my seventh novena, the feast of the Visitation, I received an e-mail telling me I had been awarded the scholarship. Thank you, St. Josemaria!
A job for my daughter
February 10, 2017I 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! Thank you for your intercession, St Josemaria! Pray through St Josemaria’ s intercession, have faith!
He has always answered me
November 22, 2016Four years ago, by chance, I came across the Novena for Work. At that time I took over the management of the technical division of a big company, from a person who seemed to be irreplaceable because he had been in the job for so long. I began praying the novena every day and found that the difficulties I was faced with began to be sorted out. In fact since that time we have made some major achievements and improved the management in many ways. Every time I was faced with a problem, I prayed to Saint Josemaria, asking him to intervene. He has always answered me. Words simply cannot express the immense help I have received from Saint Josemaria. I wanted to contribute my personal experience of his intercession. Thank you, Saint Josemaria! I pray every day for my family and for everyone who needs it.
Finishing the favor
C. M. H., Puerto Rico
November 22, 2016A year and a half ago, I prayed to St Josemaria for a job for my dad. After several attempts he obtained a full-time permanent job. But just before Christmas the van he used for deliveries was damaged. His line manager said he could choose whether to wait for two weeks while the van was repaired or look for another job.
The perfect job for me
November 22, 2016In October last year I lost my job. I sent my CV to lots of firms but only received three possible interviews. I was distraught. Then a friend recommended the novena to Saint Josemaria, and I began saying it that same day. After praying it for nearly four months, someone I know called me offering me a job that is perfect for me, and in which I can develop professionally. I am so grateful to the friend who helped me get to know Saint Josemaria and return to the Church… Thank you Saint Josemaria! Thank you, Our Lady and Jesus!
Novena and some get-togethers
August 18, 2016About a year and a half ago I discovered the message of St. Josemaria. The atmosphere at home was somewhat against religion, because for various reasons the family had stopped going to Mass and Confession. So I began a novena to St. Josemaria and invited my family to come and see the films of some get-togethers with him.
St Josemaria is incredible
August 11, 2016St Josemaria is incredible. He helps me in all the difficulties I meet in life. Thanks to him, tricky situations become much simpler. Just as an example, he helped me get a job and overcome a serious state of depression. I met people who encouraged me. Thanks to these prayers I know that things are not hopelessly bad… Let’s trust God and his servants in heaven, and everything will end up well! If we pray, everything will be given to us.

July 12, 2016A 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.
July 12, 2016My sister’s two-year-old great-grandson swallowed a peanut which went down the wrong way and reached his lung. He was a week in the university hospital in the city in Germany where the family lives. They were unable to remove the peanut.
A simple, clear, powerful petition
July 5, 2016There is a humble woman living in a small, picturesque village in the Andes in Venezuela, who, like so many women in those parts, has a little altar in her house with pictures of the saints to whom she has a devotion, including Saint Josemaria. Although she has never learned to read she knows the novena prayer by heart because she has had it read to her so often.
Never give up hope
A. C. D., Brazil
July 5, 2016One day last October I woke up having resolved to leave my job, even though I knew that Brazil is going through a difficult time and that many people are looking for work. But I was unhappy in the job I was doing, so I left it. That same day I began to pray the St Josemaria Novena that my cousin gave me. I had some interviews, always convinced that if I was not offered that particular job it was because something better was waiting for me. Now, beginning of May, I have got a job I could never even have dreamed of. The message I want to give is to put love into every activity, and like that it will always work out for the best. What matters is never to give up hope!
I said prayer-cards non-stop and my daughter recovered.
C. M. H., Puerto Rico
July 5, 2016My husband died some years ago. For all this time I have been father and mother to our three children, but especially our daughter, the youngest. She was now in the last year of her degree in medicine, and about to graduate.
To pay off a loan
June 10, 2016I prayed insistently to St Josemaria to get a job so I could pay off a loan that I took out to support my daughter’s studies. I have now paid off most of the loan. I hope that St Josemaria will keep helping me till it is all paid off.
Renegotiating the contract
June 10, 2016Since 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.
