Talking to God
During Easter-time, Christian life is characterized by the message of joy. St Josemaria's advice helps us find it: "You enjoy an interior happiness and peace that you would not exchange for anything in the world. God is here. There is no better way than telling him our woes for them to cease being such."

I write these lines in response to the request at the bottom of the novena card to St Josemaria Escriva. My father had to have ten sessions of radiotherapy to treat his cancer.

I visit some ladies in an old people’s home. One of them has a disease which atrophies her muscles. I gave her a prayer-card of St. Josemaria and after some time suggested that she should ask for his intercession.
I made the Novena for Work and my prayer was granted. I began it without really knowing what I wanted. After finishing my degree in Social Service, I could not find anything that fit me in that field. I am a catechist, and I have always loved projects and jobs connected with Christian voluntary work. I prayed several times that God would help me find a job in some project of that kind. I prayed the Novena for Work, and after a year I gave up praying for it because I didn’t know what to ask for.
