“The Way” showed me the way

Teresa, Korea.

March 11, 2014

I cannot remember if it was 7 or 8 years ago when I first read “The Way”, which was sent to me by the Catholic Digest, a Catholic monthly magazine edited by the same publishers that published “The Way” in Korean. I was captured by the book’s contents at once.

By chance?

Cecilia Awano, Japan.

February 19, 2014

I am from South Korea, and have lived in Kyoto, Japan, since my marriage. I have three children. The oldest is Hikaru (Japanese for “light”), four years old; her Christian name is Anna Maria. Then comes Kaoru (“perfume”). He is two, and when he was baptized we gave him the Christian name of Josemaria. And five months ago our lovely little daughter Maria Teresa was born; her Japanese name is Michiru, “abundance”. Their names were not chosen at random. They are closely linked to my life, which has been, in appearance, a set of chance happenings. Or perhaps they did not happen by chance at all.

The sorrows and joys of St Joseph

Palmira Laguens

January 29, 2014

In Torreciudad, a sanctuary of our Lady built in Spain under St Josemaria’s stimulation, there is an old track leading up to the original shrine.

Along the track fourteen tiled pictures have been set up, in pairs, showing “The Sorrows and Joys of St Joseph”. These represent the main moments in the life of St Joseph and the Holy Family. There is an old custom in the Church of preparing for the feast of St Joseph on March 19 by dedicating the seven previous Sundays to the memory of the main joys and sorrows of St Joseph’s life.
