Today everything has been solved

N.N., France

February 25, 2014

I have to thank St Josemaria for the favour he has obtained for me. I was involved in long, complicated negotiations with no sign of the goal I had desired so strongly for so long. I did a novena to St Josemaria to intercede for me that everything would turn out well and successfully. Today everything has been solved!

Thank you St Josemaria because I got the qualification I studied for, and thank you for helping me with every obstacle that came up, from the difficulty of getting onto the course, right up to my final exams.

The work contract

N. N., Germany.

February 20, 2014

I managed to get through all the tests for a job application process and was only waiting for the work contract. I had one month to return the signed contract, and as I had to go abroad I asked my mom to mail it for me. Although she sent it registered, the contract got lost in the mail. I gave up all hope of finding it, but then started looking for a patron saint of work to pray to. On the internet I found the prayer to Saint Josemaria and felt it was my last hope. And I couldn’t believe it – the mail arrived on the very last possible day! Finally my work contract was confirmed.

Praying the prayercard is now a daily habit

T. M., Italy

February 19, 2014

The Italian economy is in a difficult state and my family business is seasonal and depends largely on the working of the economy. I honestly thought that last year we would find the number of our clients falling quickly, so that it would be hard for us to make ends meet.

I know St Josemaria helped me

J., USA.

February 17, 2014

I know St Josemaria helped me. I was very unhappy in my previous job. I discovered and prayed the Novena for Work to St Josemaria. Within a few weeks I had the job that I had only dreamed about. I know St Josemaria helped me because it is a Spanish company expanding in the U.S.! Thanks be to God for His kindness and mercy.

A tough exam

M. M., El Salvador.

February 12, 2014

It all began in December 2012, when I enrolled to take an exam for a higher professional qualification. We had 3 months to study for the exam, but after a month I started to feel unwell, with bad headaches. I also lost the hearing in one ear because of the long hours of study on top of looking after my children. Obviously I could not keep studying for the exam. My desperation increased as the days went by and I didn’t get better. After a little time I went to the doctor and with the prescription my headaches stopped.

A trip to see my family

X. G., Spain

February 10, 2014

This message is to thank St Josemaria Escriva for the miracles he has worked in my life. One of them is that after not having seen my family for six years, a friend told me about him and his miracles. Just two days later I was on my way to visit my family.

The chair in Italy

C. M., Spain.

February 4, 2014

To begin this short account, I would like to explain that this Christmas I stayed in Italy, in a pied à terre rented by a friend of mine together with five other women, where they receive regular classes of Christian formation. This little apartment is normally vacant during the holidays, and my friend thought that as it was going to be my first Christmas away from home, because I’ve been studying for a Master’s degree since October last year, I could stay there, near where she lives, and have Christmas with her family. While I was there, I was impressed by the tidiness and good taste of the house and its decoration. It wasn’t showy, but clean and well cared for.

I got the internship hospital

I want to thank God for the internship hospital my friend and I got!! I prayed Novena for Work several times and to be honest I had moments when I gave up but my friends encouraged me to trust St Josemaria’s intercession and pray faithfully and persistently.

A taxi on New Year’s Eve

E. M., Australia

I took a disabled man out on New Year's Eve to see the fireworks. We booked a taxi 2.5 hours earlier so that we don't wait for long after the fireworks. However, the taxi was delayed by about an hour.

Light at the end of the tunnel

M. H., Spain

January 16, 2014

I lost my job on September 23. My whole world came crashing down. I have a six-year-old daughter, and my wife doesn’t work. I was overwhelmed with fear, anxiety and unhappiness, because I didn’t know what would become of us. I have worked since I was 16 and now I’m 40. I didn’t know what do to with myself, at home doing nothing all day, and it was worse not to be bringing in any money for the family. I went to the doctor’s and was prescribed tranquilizers and antidepressants.

The job I wanted

G. R., Panama

January 15, 2014

After doing the Novena for Work to St Josemaria several times, I managed to find a job in the area I trained for, which is quite difficult to do in the field of industrial psychology. The fact that I am Venezuelan meant people did not see me as the ideal person for this kind of job in Panama. But through St. Josemaria’s intercession God granted me the job. I am very happy because that has opened many other possibilities to me, as I am also working for a master’s degree.

Doors were opened to me

R. M., Costa Rica

January 13, 2014

I was going through a time of great turmoil when I received through the post a newsletter my Dad always used to get about the founder of Opus Dei. The postman told me to keep it as my Dad died on October 23, 2013. I opened the envelope and found the prayer to Saint Josemaria. I began praying it every morning before going to work. The situation has begun to improve and many doors that were closed to me have opened. What’s more, in my family there is more family unity and relations between us all are very good.
