Favours obtained through Saint Josemaria's intercession
A better work opportunity
P. A. A., Brazil
November 25, 2014I prayed through St Josemaria’s intercession for an improvement in my job and by a lottery process I obtained the perfect timetable. I give thanks to God and to the Founder of Opus Dei.
It came into my hands by chance
November 25, 2014During the days of Don Alvaro del Portillo’s beatification, there came into my hands, quite by chance, a prayer-card of Saint Josemaria. It had been given to a friend in the hotel where we both worked. At that point I wanted, with all my heart, to change my job and I had been looking for a job for a long time. When I got the prayer-card I started reading it and found myself totally absorbed in it. I prayed that I would be accepted for a job I had been interviewed for shortly before. A week later I got a call offering me the job contract. I am sure it is a miracle by St Josemaria, and as a result I am saying his prayer every day.
November 20, 2014I am grateful for St Josemaria Escriva’s intercession in helping my Mom to recover from a stroke and subsequent convulsions. Thank you!
Novena to St Josemaria
November 18, 2014I wrote a job test that I was really interested in with my cousin. Seven months passed and we weren't called. I did a nine day novena to St. Josemaria which ended on a Saturday. The following Monday my cousin was called up. I promised I will tell my story when my prayers were answered and I believe this is not yet the end of my story.
I passed with a high score
November 17, 2014Thank you to St Josemaria Escrivá. I passed my practical driving test. The first test I failed and I was depressed. I prayed to St Josemaria Escrivá and I passed with a high score! Thank you, St Josemaria.
In the third month of pregnancy
November 10, 2014My daughter Maria Jose is now eight months old. I found I was pregnant on June 26, 2013, the feast of St Josemaria, and prayed for my baby through his intercession from that moment on. In the third month of the pregnancy I started haemorrhaging. My health was delicate and I prayed the prayer to St Josemaria for the baby to be born healthy. I thank God every day for my daughter’s life, and St Josemaria Escriva for his intercession.
House for sale
A. F., Portugal
November 10, 2014Our house had been on the market for two years. At the Mass in honour of St Josemaria this year, I asked him to intercede for the house to be sold, if it was God’s will. One week later an English buyer appeared and we sold the house.
Three days later
November 4, 2014In our family we have always had a lot of love for Opus Dei and St Josemaria Escriva de Balaguer. We invoke his and Don Alvaro’s intercession for all sorts of needs. My little sister, Nina, studies law in Sao Paulo and works in an office. She was feeling rather discouraged with the atmosphere at work.
After leaving school
November 4, 2014I want to thank St Josemaria for granting me the favour I was praying for. After finishing school my son spent a month looking for a job, and now he has found one. I am so grateful to St Josemaria Escriva for this favour. He heard me prayers and interceded for me before God, who granted me this grace. My son is now working at a job he likes, just exactly as he desired. Thank you, thank you!
A call from the CEO
D. L., United States
November 4, 2014Several months after finishing a grad school program I was still struggling to find meaningful work: work that feeds my soul, my family and the world. I "Googled" the phrase "novena for work" and a link to St. Josemaria's novena appeared. On the eight day of the novena (out of nine) I received a call from a CEO who was launching a new company; he asked me for a meeting and soon after I began working in the role of Social Content Director. Thank you good Saint for your intercession.
I had a job
November 4, 2014Not having worked for many years I began looking for a job and did the Novena for Work to St Josemaria. Just days after finishing it, I had a job. Very many thanks to St Josemaria for favors received.
A favor so quickly granted
N. M. C., Canada
October 29, 2014I started a novena for an after-school job for my daughter. That was four days ago. On day one my daughter submitted a job application which was immediately acknowledged and an interview arranged for 11:00 am today. My daughter was hired to start next week. Thanks a lot St. Josemaria Escriva for a favour so quickly granted.
Two thousand tiles
October 27, 2014We are repairing our Cathedral and we get no help from the government. While I was away on a study course for priests someone from our parish called me and said we needed 2000 more tiles to make the roof over the church and sacristy water-tight. I was extremely worried, because we had run out of money and I hadn’t expected the costs to be so high. The total we needed was 30,000 bolivars. That night I couldn’t sleep, and I remembered how St. Josemaria used to tell us to have great trust in Providence. I prayed, “Father, if this is pleasing to God, help me, because you know I’m not doing all this for my sake but for the people. But if it isn’t pleasing to God, leave it all as it is.” In the evening prayer the next day I heard a voice within me telling me, “Have trust.” When I was in my room, at around 11 at night I got a text message saying “Father I want to contribute towards whatever is needed for the repairs to the church. Let me have the account number to send it to.” I did so, but thought that what one of the parishioners could give would not be very much.
I’d never contacted the firm I’m now working for
October 27, 2014Hi everyone, I want to testify to a favour received through Saint Josemaria Escriva. I am 32 and was unemployed. I send my CV to many different companies but never got called for an interview, or if I did, it always ended the same way: “We’ll contact you.” Just by chance I found the story of Saint Josemaria on the internet. I’d never heard of him before. I read about how he was a saint who obtained favours for the jobless. To cut a long story short, I started the Novena for Work to Saint Josemaria, and on the ninth day, as I finished the novena, I begged the saint to intercede before God for me to get a job. The next day, the long-awaited grace arrived: the saint had got me a job. The extraordinary thing is that I don’t even remember contacting the firm I’m working for now. This is my testimony. Praised be Jesus Christ!
We had a child after 8 years
S. G., UK
October 27, 2014I write to let you know of a miracle obtained through the intercession of St. Josemaria. My wife and I were unable to conceive a child for eight years. Each day over many months I prayed the Prayer to St. Josemaria asking for his help and in time we conceived a wonderful little girl who is a great joy to us. This child would not have been possible without the intervention of St. Josemaria.
