Today is the feast of St. Josemaría Escrivá, a priest and the founder of the Catholic prelature Opus Dei. Through his life and work, this saint reminds us that we are all called to holiness in our everyday lives — advice that feels all the more pertinent as we navigate our way through COVID-19.
Many of us have been forced to re-evaluate our lives, focus on what’s truly important, and appreciate things we previously took for granted. And through this process many of us have discovered that there is more room for God in our daily lives.
So if you’d like some inspiration for how to live a life of holiness and make your ordinary day extraordinary, look at these wise words from the much-admired Spanish priest, whom John Paul II once expressed should be “counted among the great witnesses of Christianity.”
