Josemaria Escriva. Founder of Opus Dei


“Many people begin, but few finish. And we, who are trying to behave as God’s children, have to be among those few. Remember that only work that is well done and lovingly completed deserves the praise of the Lord which is to be found in Holy Scripture: ‘better is the end of a task than its beginning’”. The opening words of a homily given by Saint Josemaría on this date and later published in Friends of God.
