This book brings together four homilies of St. Josemaria Escriva, the founder of Opus Dei. These homilies contain magnificent reflections on the Church and the laity's role in the Church, written in St. Josemaria's attractive and compelling style. It offers an opportunity to grow in love for the Church and to learn how to serve her more faithfully, guided by a saint whose own love for the Church was truly remarkable.

St. Josemaria Escriva was born in Spain in 1902 and was ordained a priest in 1926. In 1928, he received the divine inspiration to found Opus Dei, a Catholic organization of lay people and priests who try to grow close to God through their ordinary lives. St. Josemaria died in 1975 and was canonized by Pope John Paul II in 2002.
