On October 2, 1967, on the campus of the University of Navarra in Pamplona, Spain, St. Josemaria Escriva preached a now historic homily titled Passionately Loving the World. In it he summarized the universal call to holiness - a call open to all men and women who desire to serve God and all humanity through their work and daily activities.
In April 2006, the St. Josemaria Institute released the short documentary film Passionately Loving the World. The award-winning documentary captures the lives of nine individuals from across the United States who inspired by St. Josemaria's teachings have chosen to respond to the universal call to holiness.
Through a series of candid interviews, these individuals share their personal stories with us, from the small details of their day to the significant moments in their lives. They share these moments with us in light of how the spirituality of St. Josemaria challenges them to constantly embrace with confidence and with love those often joyful but also painful moments that God allows.
"May you seek Christ, May you find Christ, May you love Christ." - St. Josemaria Escriva
