St. JoseMaria Escriva

The saint of ordinary life.

In thanksgiving for the graces and favors bestowed upon the holy founder of Opus Dei.


  1. Ordinary life is just so damned hard sometimes, isn't it? Is this your painting?

  2. No it is not mine - but it is nice, don't you think.

    And yes - ordinary life is hard - it's our penance without looking for one.

  3. It is lovely...I have been going through a particuarly rough patch and when I start to feel sorry for myself, I think instead, thank you God for the life that I still have to do penance and make reparation for my sins. I like to think it is His mercy--helping me to get to Heaven...
