What our friends say...

" I have come to know St. Josemaria Escriva over the past year of my life and have never been the same. Since then, the Lord has used his words so many times to change the way that I look at my simple life.  How everything can change when you change your gaze. I am able to walk with Jesus with small sacrifices and try to offer every moment to God."
REBECCA
"I have been listening to many YouTube recordings of St. Josemaria Escriva and appreciating everything he says.  It is so interesting to me that, at 74 years old, I am just now discovering that there is actually a way of life, a way to live out our faith, in a very practical way in the midst of the world."
