Two novenas for work

M. E. B., Argentina

April 28, 2014

My daughter couldn’t get her finances straightened out. She had been like that for nearly 27 months. After doing two Novenas for Work she found a really good job. Thank you, St Josemaria, for helping my daughter at such a difficult time.

St Josemaria has been with me

J. R., USA

April 28, 2014

In November 2013 I was fired from my job of 9 years with no explanation given. It was a very painful experience for me as it involved people whom I trusted and loved very much. For weeks I was in complete shock. Then for months I was just so sad and scared not just because I lost my livelihood (I am single) but all my friends who were like family in an instant.

A healthy grandson

S. H. A., Mexico

April 22, 2014

I give endless thanks to Saint Josemaria Escriva de Balaguer for hearing my prayers once again and sending me a wonderful healthy grandson. I had been praying for this for a long time. Fill him with God’s blessings, Saint Josemaria, look after him and protect him. A thousand thanks!

Before I finished the novena

L. W., USA

April 22, 2014

I did the Novena for Work and before I finished it my nephew got a job. We are thanking Saint Josemaria Escriva. Now my sister and her son are full of gratitude because I sent them the novena with the prayer to Saint Josemaria. Thank-you, God!

Eight months

J. F. L., Mexico

April 22, 2014

I would like to give thanks for favors granted through St. Josemaria’s intercession. I was looking for a job for eight months, then I did the Novena for Work and kept praying it, because I had spent several years doing very badly-paid jobs. After constant, trusting prayer I got a good job, and bless God for it every day, because thanks to that I am able to support my family. Thank you!

A prayer-card by the steering-wheel

V., Spain

April 9, 2014

I run a pre-cooked meals business for caterers. Winter sales are always bad as many places close down outside the tourist season. One month ago I had no money for fresh supplies. I could not even get the transport agency to collect a consignment, because I couldn’t pay them. I prayed to St. Josemaria to help me over this bad time. No sooner said than done. A client called asking me to come and collect payment for a small outstanding bill. That gave me the money to pay for the consignment, but it was Friday morning and the supplier was 300 km away. I needed to use those supplies on Saturday so that I could get the products to clients on time.

Speak to you soon about more favors!

M. D., France

April 2, 2014

I thought I had cancer of the face, as this was what the doctors gave me to understand when I came out of radiology. I prayed hard to Saint Josemaria that the biopsy they took of the nodule would be OK. Two weeks later I got the result: it was a benign cyst. Thank-you, Saint Josemaria, and speak to you soon about more favors!

The Car Mechanics

A. C., Spain

April 1, 2014

I’ve grown up knowing and relating to St Josemaria, because at home, my parents said the prayer-card to the Servant of God (as he then was) Josemaria Escriva every evening.

Good result for the company

C. R., Brazil

March 27, 2014

In gratitude to St Josemaria, I am writing to report a grace granted to me by God through his intercession. The year 2013 was proving a very bad one for my IT company. Some of our best contracts had terminated the year before or at the beginning of 2013, and although we were working hard to win new contracts the outlook was not favourable.

No trace of the disease

V. V., Croatia

March 27, 2014

In January this year my father was diagnosed with metastasis in the liver and arm; the doctors told us that the prognosis was very poor. All that time we kept praying the Rosary and did the Novena for the Sick with the prayer to St Josemaria.

The miracle happened

A., France.

March 20, 2014

About 3 weeks ago I found this website by chance and read testimonies about people’s prayers being heard through St Josemaria’s intercession. I had been looking for a job for more than 3 years so I started doing the novena 9 days ago. And today just at the end of my novena I got a call saying that I have a 3-year contract. Not having any work experience I thought this would be impossible, but the miracle has happened: I start work 2 weeks from now and I’m over the moon. I am thanking St Josemaria for this first job, and thank you to all the people who help publicise these prayers.

All my prayers were granted

R. S., Philippines.

March 14, 2014

Thanks to St. Josemaria all my prayers were granted. I started to pray to him March 2011, the day I submitted my application as Local School Board teacher, because my private employer was going to terminate my contract by June.

The Novena teaches you to love work

M. D., Spain.

March 12, 2014

Once again, after I read the Novena for Work, St. Josemaria has interceded to get someone a job. It was a difficult endeavour because of the economy, but just a few weeks after going back to his country, a friend of mine found a job in La Paz, Bolivia. The Novena teaches you to love work and sanctify yourself in what you do every day.

Documentation problems

I heard about Saint Josemaria through Annie. And through his intercession all sorts of documentation problems have been sorted, with regards to our house and also a used car we bought. Thank you again.

The right doctor at just the right moment

D. M. E., Paraguay

March 5, 2014

I always receive favours from God through St Josemaria’s intercession. Although I have known about him ever since I was quite young, the first time I asked him for help was when my husband was in hospital with such agonizing headaches that he went into convulsions. He was on morphine for a fortnight to relieve the pain. One afternoon I went to talk to the doctors and specifically the head of neurology, and asked them to explain what was happening. When I went in they were going through each of my husband’s results but said they could not arrive at a diagnosis. At that point the head of neurology took me by the arm and led me to her office. She asked me, “Are you a Catholic?” I said yes. Then she said, “I’ll give you a prayer-card of someone you can pray to, because we want to treat your husband but we don’t know what he has, and where science falls short, God can reach.” She gave me a newsletter and prayer-card of St Josemaria.
