Opus Dei prelate- Eightieth anniversary of founding of Opus Dei- humility important

(Journey in a Broken World; c.f. Opus Dei)

Article by Marc Aupiais

On the 80th anniversary, which was four days ago- since Josemaria Escriva', a personal favourite of mine among the saints, founded Opus Dei- the Prelate of Opus Dei- an organization he founded to let its members live God's calling in everyday life is (Opus Dei- 01/10/08) telling Opus Dei members and us who hear him- that humility is important. Opus Dei allows for holiness in daily existence- its members preach the gospel in their lives, though their lives- in this unique way in which the calls to holiness are realized.

Escriva- notes Opus Dei- saw the scriptures, not as something for or of the past- but a means of communication for the present.

His willingness to obey God- caused him to realize that the "scales" had "fallen from his eyes", in his own personal Damascus road. Thus he began such godly work with his time. Opus Dei, and this man's many influences are fruits of his humility in founding this great organization, and personal prelate within mother church.
