Feast Day of St. Josemaría Escrivá joyfully celebrated

On Saturday evening 26 June, many people gathered in Sint-Kwinten’s church to celebrate the Feast Day of St. Josemaría Escrivá (1902 – 1975), founder of “Work of God,” whose core message is that our daily activities—our family life, professional work, social relationships—are paths leading to heaven, if one walks with one’s eyes fixed on God and with a desire to help one’s neighbor.

“To be holy isn’t easy, but it isn’t difficult either. To be holy is to be a good Christian, to resemble Christ. The more closely a person resembles Christ, the more Christian he is, the more he belongs to Christ, the holier he is.”

—St. Josemaría Escrivá
