Among the various subject areas of its publications, the following have special importance:
Fr. Joseph Musquiz (1912-1983) was one of the first three men ordained as priests for Opus Dei (along with Blessed Alvaro del Portillo and José María Hernández Garnica). He worked to establish Opus Dei around the world and was sent by St. Josemaria Escriva to the United States In 1944. The cause for his canonization was opened by the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Boston, where he died.
Fr. Dick Rieman (1925-2019) was born in Chicago and served as a Navy flyer in World War II. After the war he studied at DePaul University, where he met Fr. Joseph Muzquiz and Salvador Ferigle, who had just arrived in Chicago from Spain to begin Opus Dei’s apostolic work in the United States. Dick Rieman (as he was known) joined Opus Dei in 1950 and thus became the first member from the United States. He went on help start the Heights Study Center, which later became The Heights School in Potomac, Maryland, and spent the last 40 years as chaplain of the Montrose School for Girls in Medfield, Massachusetts.
