June 26: Saint Josemaria Escriva

History

Saint Josemaria Escriva grew up in a devout family. However, that did not mean things were always easy. Bad things happened to them, but that taught Saint Josemaria to find his joy in the Lord. He became a priest and started an organization to help all people learn to live holy lives filled with love for God and other people. Throughout his life, Saint Josemaria always prayed the same prayers his parents and grandparents taught him when he was a little boy, because they helped him remember to keep his eyes on Jesus.


Activity

Today, learn the prayer that Saint Josemaria Escriva prayed every night before he went to bed:  “I am yours, I was born for you,
 Dear Jesus, what do you want me to do?”Make sure you pray it every night, too!

Saint Josemaria Escriva, pray for us!
