Our Story

work as prayer

Once you've discovered the beauty of God's closeness, it's natural to want to experience it more often—as often as you can!

And then you realize there's something holy, something divine, hidden in the most ordinary moments, and that it’s your responsibility to reveal it. God is always waiting... ready to meet you... to be with you. 

As St. Josemaría Escrivá said: “Either we learn to find our Lord in ordinary, everyday life, or else we never find Him.” 

At Scepter, we understand. We’ve been publishing books that men and women discover, and grow closer to Christ every day in their work, family life, and other ordinary activities—to help our readers bring His closeness to others.

Our aim is simple. We want to help you find Christ and share Him with others, every day, from right where you are, wherever you are. 

Our mission is to support a  grassroots evangelization in the service of the Church—in the middle of the world—in every sector of society.

Our Founders

Our founder was Fr. Dick Rieman, a former naval aviator, the first member of Opus Dei in The United States, who went on to become a priest. One of our founding directors was Fr. Joseph Musquiz, who, in 1949, was sent by St. Josemaria Escriva to the United States. In 1944, Fr. Musquiz, was one of the first three men ordained as priests for Opus Dei (along with Blessed Alvaro del Portillo and José María Hernández Garnica).
