By Saint Josemaría Escrivá
In Love with the Church brings together four homilies of Saint Josemaría Escrivá, the founder of Opus Dei. These homilies contain magnificent reflections on the Church and on the layperson's role in the Church, written in Saint Josemaría's attractive and compelling style. This book offers the reader and opportunity to grow in love for the Church and to learn how to serve her more faithfully, guided by a saint whose own love for the Church was truly remarkable.
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.
