Josemaria Escriva. Founder of Opus Dei

St Josemaria prayer-cards in more languages

Chinese is spoken by nearly 1400 million people worldwide. Now the prayer-card of St Josemaria is available in Chinese. It is also available on this website in pdf format in Thai, Vietnamese, Arab, Bulgarian and Armenian, and other languages.

“When the Lord calls me and takes me to Heaven, from there I’ll be able to help you much more, and very effectively,” St Josemaria once said. From the day of his death, June 26, 1975, the headquarters of the Opus Dei prelature in Rome began to receive accounts of favors attributed to St Josemaria from all around the world: conversions, decisions to practise the fullness of the Christian faith, cures, and material favors. They reflect a devotion that the Holy See called “a genuine manifestation of popular piety”.

It all began with a prayer

Many people have begun to pray through St Josemaria’s intercession after coming across a prayercard about him, very often by chance. Ever since the prayercard of St Josemaria was first printed, hundreds of favors have been obtained through his intercession. These witness to the universal reach of his message, the fruitfulness of his life, and the trust with which people have recourse to his intercession in Heaven.

New versions on the web

The spreading of his message, and devotion to him, throughout the world, has made it necessary to produce versions of the prayer in many languages. The pdf format in which they are available on this website means they can be more easily printed off and passed on to others.
