By Blessed Alvaro del Portillo 

This collection of spiritual writings by Blessed del Portillo is an anthology of texts from his pastoral letters and homilies over a 19 year period from 1975 to 1994 as President-General and later Prelate of Opus Dei. Compiled by Rev. Jose Antonio Loarte, it includes excerpts of varying length organized under a series of seven topics including:

  • The goal of human life: the glory of God
  • Restoring the kingdom of God 
  • The growth of Christian life
  • The path of Christian life in the world
  • The struggle for holiness
  • The means for sanctification
  • The apostolic zeal of a Christian 

Blessed Alvaro del Portillo was the head of the Opus Dei Prelature for almost twenty years, from 1975 to 1994.  In that period he gave numerous homilies and addresses; he wrote 176 pastoral letters and had hundreds of conversations with thousands of people in Rome and on his pastoral journeys across the globe.  His reputation for holiness is well-known throughout the world, with his beatification in 2014 approved by Pope Francis.
