Next month on June 26th we will celebrate the Feast Day of St. Josemaria Escriva, the founder of Opus Dei. A Spanish priest, Escriva was dedicated to teaching people how to respond to God's universal call to holiness, and how ordinary life can be the path to sanctity. He died on June 26, 1975 and was canonized in 2002 by St. John Paul II.

Inspired by him, Scepter Publishers seeks to help men and women put Christ at the center of their lives and at the summit of all human activities. As part of that mission we're devoted to spreading knowledge of and devotion for this great saint of the ordinary.

We're sharing a variety of resources to help you get to know this modern saint who believed that everyone - no matter their profession or state in life - could be a saint!

"Whenever I preach beside the crib, I try to see Christ our Lord as a child wrapped in swaddling clothes lying on straw in a manger. Even though he is only a child, unable to speak, I see him as a master and a teacher." - St. Josemaria
