When I was 32 I was converted again

My name is Marco and I first heard of St Josemaria’s message about Christian living just over a year ago. I had stopped practicing my faith more than fifteen years before.

"My husband was baptized Catholic, but had never received any of the other sacraments. None of our four children nor I had ever been baptized."

Stories from his life

St Josemaria Escriva in Argentina

St Josemaria Escriva in Argentina

On June 7, 1974, the founder of Opus Dei, Msgr Josemaria Escriva, arrived in Argentina, wishing to carry out an intense catechetical apostolate. During his stay in Argentina he had many encounters with people in Opus Dei, families and friends. In these gatherings he talked about the great themes that move the world: God and men, life and death, suffering and joy, love and the fight against sin.

Saint Josemaría Escrivá
"Your ordinary contact with God takes place where your fellow men, your yearnings, your work and your affections are. There you have your daily encounter with Christ.”
SAINT JOSEMARÍA, Founder of Opus Dei
