Born sixty years before the Second Vatican Council, St. Josemaria Escriva grew up in a politically volatile Spain, where the Church struggled to dialogue in a fast-changing world. This audiobook, based on the Catholic Truth Society booklet by Ethel Tolansky & Helena Scott, traces St. Josemaria Escriva’s journey from childhood and family tragedy, vocational struggle and civil war to the personal discovery of his own, fairly revolutionary task of teaching people, ordinary lay people, how to find God in their work.
This refreshing account offers moving evidence of St. Josemaria Escriva’s courage, goodness and originality, and his prophetic contribution towards uncovering the fullness of the apostolate shared by all the baptised, which itself helped prepare the ground for the Council.
