Today we reflect on nine quotes by St. Josemaría. He reminds us to have pride in our daily work and enter each day with the certainty that acting with love makes every task important and pleasing to God, however humble it may seem to the eyes of the world.
Pope St. John Paul II called St. Josemaría, “the saint of ordinary life.” His feast day is an opportunity to seek his intercession before God for all the needs and intentions that concern us in our daily lives: challenges of the family, marriage, work, unemployment, sickness, society, and culture. We can also turn to him for help in seeking and being faithful to God’s will, whatever our state in life: single, married, or celibate.
How do we sanctify our daily life like Josemaría did? Acting with love and avoiding judgments are some of the ways St. Josemaría teaches us to act like Christ and bring others closer to God. Living an ordinary life with love leads us to greatness and has a positive impact on those around us.
