By St. Josemaría Escrivá
Like The Way, Furrow is the fruit of St. Josemaría's rich interior life and extensive experience as a pastor. Aphoristic and perfect for meditation, Furrow was written in order to encourage and ease personal prayer. These 1000 points for spiritual reflection are directed toward the whole human person: body and soul, nature and grace. With the skillful hand of an experienced and holy priest, St. Josemaría interweaves the divine and human and helps you see how to bring them into harmony in your own life.
St. Josemaría Escrivá de Balaguer (9 January 1902 – 26 June 1975) was a Roman Catholic priest from Spain who founded Opus Dei, an organization of laypeople and priests dedicated to teaching people how to respond to God's universal call to holiness, and how ordinary life can be the path to sanctity.
St. Josemaría was canonized during 2002 by St. John Paul II, who declared that he should be counted among the great witnesses of Christianity. St. Josemaría's writings assist every baptized person in their discipleship to Jesus Christ through by imbuing ordinary life with sanctifying grace.
