Message of the day

“We have to toil away each day with Jesus”

How happy when they die must be those who have lived heroically every minute of their life! I can assure you it is so, because I have seen the joy of those who have prepared themselves for many years, with calm impatience, for this encounter. (Furrow, 893)

Our Lord has given us as a present our very lives, our senses, our faculties, and countless graces. We have no right to forget that each of us is a worker, one among many, on this plantation where He has placed us to cooperate in the task of providing food for others. This is our place, here within the boundaries of this plantation. Here is where we have to toil away each day with Jesus, helping him in his work of redemption [1]. 

Allow me to insist. You think your time is for yourself?...

Saint Josemaría Escrivá
"It is in the midst of the most material things of the earth that we must sanctify ourselves, serving God and all mankind.”
SAINT JOSEMARÍA, Founder of Opus Dei
