Josemaría Escrivá was born in Barbastro in 1902, at about ten o’clock at night. He wrote later: “God our Lord (…) caused me to be born in a Christian home like most of those in my country, to exemplary parents who practised and lived their faith, and who gave me great freedom from the time when I was quite young, while at the same time watching over me very carefully. They tried to make sure I was formed in a deeply Christian way.”
