Come, O Holy Spirit:
enlighten my understanding
to know your commands;
strengthen my heart
against the wiles of the enemy; inflame my will...
I have heard your voice,
and I don't want to harden my heart to resisting,
by saying 'later... tomorrow.'
Nunc coepi! Now!
Lest there be no tomorrow for me!
O, Spirit of truth and wisdom,
Spirit of understanding and counsel,
Spirit of joy and peace!
I want what you want,
I want it because you want it,
I want it as you want it,
I want it when you want it.
- ST. JOSEMARIA

"All who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God" (Rom 8, 14). These words of the Apostle Paul... help us understand better the significant message of today's canonization of Josemaria Escriva de Balaguer. With docility he allowed himself to be led by the Spirit, convinced that only in this way can one fully accomplish God's will." (Homily from the Canonization of Josemaria Escriva, October 6, 2002)
On November 14-16, 2013, the Pontifical University of the Holy Cross in Rome will be hosting "Saint Josemaria and Theological Thought", an International Conference to reflect on how Theology can benefit from the spiritual doctrine of St. Josemaria Escriva, founder of Opus Dei.

“Let us ask our Lord then to make us souls devoted to the blessed Eucharist, so that our relationship with him brings forth joy and serenity and a desire for justice. In this way we will make it easier for others to recognize Christ; we will put Christ at the center of all human activities.”
St. Josemaria Escriva
(Christ is Passing By, 156)
“This is the day which the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.” (Ps 114:24) Happy Easter!
