Favours obtained through Saint Josemaria's intercession
May 19, 2015I am a doctor and I came to Germany alone. Getting a work permit was a huge task. I put my trust in God and prayed hard to St Josemaria. Result: I have residency in Europe, a job for several years and a permit to practice medicine for two years.
Work for a family member
M. D., Spain
May 19, 2015Once again Saint Josemaria has interceded for us in our needs. I began the Novena for work for someone in my family to find a job that he could combine with his family life and his physiotherapy course, and now he has got it. Thank you, Saint Josemaria.
A Sore Throat that Impedes My Speaking
A. R., Lithuania
May 19, 2015As I have received a favour from St Josemaria I want to tell about it here because I think that if I have asked him for something and he has granted it to me, it is only fair to put it in writing.
A Job for My Eldest Son
M. F. G., Spain
May 19, 2015I want to thank God, through St Josemaria’s intercession, for granting one of the many favours I have been asking of him for some time now through the Novena for Work. My eldest son, after a long time spent looking for a job, found a job as a salesman and little by little is achieving very good results. What’s more, I can see how committed and responsible he is in his work. I continue to pray for God to give me more faith and trust. Thank you very much, St Josemaria.

Unexpected Exam Result
L. L., Philippines
May 8, 2015Year 2012. I was a fresh graduate then and I together with my co-teachers decided to took the Licensure Examination for Teachers. After the exam we were advised to wait for three months to get the results. Within three months I prayed the prayercard of St. Josemaria. Unexpectedly with the help of St. Josemaria's intercession for us to Our Lord together with the Blessed Virgin Mary we passed the exam. Knowing that I don't have the time to review my notes before the exam but I passed the exam. Much thanks to St. Josemaria most especially to Our Lord. Until now I'm praying the prayer card of him.
Novena for Work
V. G., Brazil
May 6, 2015I want to give my testimony. I am doing the Novena for work and, thank God, I have found several freelance jobs, which is a huge help for me. Thank you, St Josemaria, for listening to me and interceding for me before God.
Money to Go Abroad
G. A., Paraguay
May 6, 2015I am grateful for Saint Josemaria’s intercession. I was getting ready to go on a one-week course in another country. I worked out what I would need and found that I did not have enough money. I was very worried because I did not want to take out a loan, and I appealed to Saint Josemaria’s intercession. I checked my bank account and saw that the institution where I work had just paid in a sum of money that they had not paid in previous months, just exactly the amount I needed. I am so grateful for our Lord’s generosity and I turn to Saint Josemaria’s intercession constantly.
L. G. M., Argentina
April 28, 2015Ten years have gone by since our son came home from an operation on his head and got straight on his bicycle and when we said maybe he should wait, he retorted, “The operation was on my head, not my feet!” Every day for the past ten years we have thanked God and Saint Josemaria, because thanks to his intercession that operation was a marvelous Miracle. When we took him to the Austral University Hospital in Buenos Aires for tests, we picked up a magazine with a picture of Saint Josemaria, and that very moment we started praying through his intercession for Felipe’s recovery, since the prognosis was very bad indeed. A few days later, on 18-03-2005 he was operated on by Dr. M. in F. Hospital. The outcome was so extraordinary that when Dr M. came out of the theater he could only say “It was a miracle.” Felipe woke up from the anesthetic asking for a fizzy drink as if nothing had happened…
April 28, 2015Infinite thanks to St Josemaria for favors received: my nephews and siblings all found jobs.
Novena for Work
C. G. K., Argentina
April 21, 2015Ever since I first heard about him, around 1990, Saint Josemaria has brought me closer to Jesus and Mary in my work. I listened to some of his meditations and teachings. I have been sick for two years and undergoing chemo for a rare disease, which very few people in the world suffer from. I thank God that his Will is being done in my life, and I trust in Him with all my strength. Saint Josemaria helps me to say the Holy Rosary every day with our Blessed Mother Mary. I have not been able to work during these two years’ sickness. The favors I would like to share with you, received through Saint Josemaria’s intercession, are: his vital presence in my life ever since I learned about his work; and I prayed for my two sons, who are married with children, and my daughter-in-law, to get jobs, and now they have them. Now I am praying the Novena for Work that he may find a job for me, in my sick and disabled state. I know that God will prepare the right job for me to give glory to His Holy Name.
A job for my son
L. E. G., Colombia
April 20, 2015I give thanks to Father Josemaria for the favor received. I prayed through his intercession for a job for my son, and he has received a call offering him a place. Thank you!
Favours in an old people’s home
T. P., Argentina
April 13, 2015I visit some ladies in an old people’s home. One of them has a disease which atrophies her muscles. She is paralyzed from the waist down and finds it difficult to speak clearly. She is in a lot of pain. I gave her a prayer-card of St. Josemaria and after some time suggested that she should ask for his intercession. She told me that St. Josemaria is showering her with favors. For instance, she is very scared of thunderstorms. One day when there was a very violent storm she prayed that the rain would go away to somewhere where it was needed, and it stopped raining right then. Another favor: the carer who works the night shift had very little patience, and one night when she needed her and called her, but she didn’t come, she asked St. Josemaria to soften the carer’s heart a little, and that very instant, she came to look after her.
Novena for the sick
M. V., Mexico
April 13, 2015I write these lines in response to the request at the bottom of the novena card to St Josemaria Escriva. My father had to have ten sessions of radiotherapy to treat his cancer. By the end he was so ill that he had to be hospitalized. He spent ten days in hospital and a long time at home convalescing. The doctors and the test results were not good news, and the prognosis was alarming. I found the novena to St Josemaria on the internet, when I was desperately trying to find some prayer to say for the sick. As I prayed day after day, my father’s condition started improving. A month has now gone by, and he continues to get better little by little. Thank you, St Josemaria Escriva, for the help received through your intercession.
I made the Novena for Work and my prayer was granted
R. N. S., Brazil
April 7, 2015I made the Novena for Work and my prayer was granted. I began it without really knowing what I wanted. After finishing my degree in Social Service, I could not find anything that fit me in that field. I am a catechist, and I have always loved projects and jobs connected with Christian voluntary work. I prayed several times that God would help me find a job in some project of that kind. I prayed the Novena for Work, and after a year I gave up praying for it because I didn’t know what to ask for. At the beginning of this year I decided to put all my efforts into my professional work and training, and my first step was to make the Novena for Work. I went to the Opus Dei website to see the petitions other people were making and there I read that a young woman was praying for “A new job opportunity”. I thought that sounded exactly right and that God would send me whatever was best for me. I did the novena until the third day, and then I got a call offering me a job which I liked, but whose salary did not cover my needs. I turned it down, but the person whom I spoke to said that the offer remained open.
