Josemaria Escriva. Founder of Opus Dei


“Today I offered Mass for Poland. That Catholic nation, victim of Nazi aggression, is suffering a terrible trial and going through very difficult times. We have to pray for Poland,” said St Josemaría to Jose Orlandis, who was taking part in a spiritual retreat preached by Saint Josemaría for university students, which began on this day in Burjasot, Spain.
