On this day


“This morning, as usual, as I was leaving the convent of Santa Isabel, I went to the tabernacle for a moment to say good-bye to Jesus. I said to him, ‘Jesus, here is your donkey… See what you can do with your donkey.’ And immediately I understood, without hearing any words: ‘A donkey was my throne in Jerusalem.’ This was the concept I grasped, with full clarity,” wrote Saint Josemaría in his personal notes on this date.
