Lolita and Chon, St Josemaria’s younger sisters
Saint Josemaría’s sister Lolita was born today. She died just five years later. In 1975, Saint Josemaría was awarded a gold medal by Barbastro Town Council. In his speech of thanks, he said: “During the years I have lived in Rome, the eternal city, the See of Peter, and also when the apostolate led me to travel far and wide, the memory of Barbastro and its people has always stayed with me. I remember so many names of people connected with the family which God’s loving Providence deigned to bestow on me. My most fervent prayers go with those who have departed this life; I pray that the Lord may already have granted them the gift of everlasting happiness.”
