Quotations from St. Josemaria Escriva
"Please," "Thank you," "I'm sorry." Pope Francis teaches that although these words are easier to say than to mean, they are absolutely necessary. They are part of good manners, meaning respect and the desire for the good of the other, not hypocrisy or pretence.
"If a marriage is to preserve its initial charm and beauty, both husband and wife should try to renew their love day after day, and that is done through sacrifice, with smiles and also with ingenuity," said St Josemaria, and he recommended spouses to try and overcome themselves a little every day to ensure that their marriage always stays as young and joyful as it was on the first day.
By Bishop Javier Echevarria
"The new encyclical of the Holy Father Francis is closely tied to the opening pages of Sacred Scripture. God created the human being as man and woman and placed them in the garden of Eden to till it and keep it (Gen 2:15). And he brought all the animals to the man to see how he would name them (cf. Gen 2:19). This was an act of love on God's part, an expression of his confidence in each human being, to whom he entrusted the task of developing the potentialities that he himself had placed in creatures."Read more...

"Love is most in its element when it abides in hearts that dare to replicate the Savior’s love for them. Heading St Josemaria’s 'list' of such ardent souls is Saint Mary Magdalene, in whose love we see answered the boundless love and mercy shown her by Christ. In her holy 'excess' an icon emerges of what loving God heroically means, and what it means for Him to love us heroically. On either side, there is an unselfconscious outpouring of self that focuses entirely on the good of the beloved."Read more...
