Reflecting Josemaría Escrivá’s belief that God can be found in professional and everyday settings. 28 Marriage is for the rank and file, not for the officers of Christ's army. For, unlike food, which is necessary for every individual, procreation is necessary only for the species, and individuals can dispense with it.

Escriva de Balaguer has written something more than a masterpiece; he has written straight from the heart, and straight to the heart.

The strength, the attraction of The Way is largely due to the fact that it is based on real, living experience, being the fruit of the author's work as a priest which began in 1925. Escriva de Balaguer has written something more than a masterpiece; he has written straight from the heart, and straight to the heart go the short paragraphs which make up The Wa. (from the author's preface:) "Read these counsels slowly.

Josemaría Escrivá, priest and founder of Opus Dei, spread the universal call to holiness. He preached: "Your ordinary contact with God takes place where your fellow men, your yearnings, your work and your affections are. There you have your daily encounter with Christ.

Saint Josemaría Escrivá de Balaguer y Albás (9 January 1902 – 26 June 1975) was a Spanish Roman Catholic priest who founded Opus Dei, an organization of laypeople and priests dedicated to the teaching that everyone is called to holiness by God and that ordinary life can result in sanctity. He was canonized during 2002 by Pope John Paul II, who declared Saint Josemaría should be "counted among the great witnesses of Christianity.

Kea
This short book contains 999 sayings/advice/maxims (although the introduction would rather avoid this word) of one of the greatest saints of the 20th century, Josemaria Escriva. The sayings (for lack of a better term) are organized by topic, such as faith, obedience, the will of God, and tactics. Some critique this book for having "fortune cookie" sayings; that is, short quips which sound appealing at first, but after a surface glance are devoid of substance. I would argue that nothing could be further from the truth. Rather, the more one contemplates these sayings, the more wisdom and insight one gains. For example, this book contains the often quoted saying "Don't say 'that person annoys me' but say 'that person sanctifies me.'" This points to the profound depth of God's providence. He places in our lives everything and only everything that is beneficial for our sanctity. Hence, the "annoying coworker" is really an opportunity, a grace from God to grow in holiness. Isn't that amazing how the Catholic faith can turn around what would otherwise be a pointless and annoying aspect of life into one of the most important opportunists to take advantage of? Remarkable.

One could easily being one's day by just reading a single saying and meditating on it, or pursuing his sayings until you find one that strikes you or speaks to you. A saying that I have come to often repeat from the book is "You are bored? That is because your body is awake and your soul is asleep." My children have become quite annoyed at hearing me say this, to the point where they will say "I'm bored... don't say it! Don't say it!" For the record, I will ALWAYS say it. The point is, with 999 sayings, you can easily find just one that you can begin to regularly incorporate into your life (and annoy others with which, as we saw above, is a very great opportunity for them!)

We have lost the sense of reading and studying both the writings and lives of the saints. There is, in my opinion, so much division in the Church today because we do not have a sense of how the saints themselves thought. This book is a great first step to begin to conform your mind to that of a modern and great saint. I highly recommend this book.

The author speaks to you as if you were the only one in the room. The direct approach keeps you focused. The style is to be read in small chunks. Daily, read just a few points and consider them in the presence of God in silent prayer. Saint Josemaria writes for the busy professional, worker, and those who seek to learn how to bring their Christian faith to their friends.

Quick shots that really sum up the simple-but-not-easy journey of the Catholic faith. It’s easy to get lost in the faith but Jose Maria makes it simple and straight forward.
Malara
This is a book of short excerpts from various writings by St. Josemaria Escriva. They are great for daily devotions or just a quick "pick me up" whenever you want one. The man pulls no punches but sometimes you need a kick in the pants vs a pat on the back! :) Escriva has a very practical, down-to-earth approach. I like it!
Onetarieva
The very best in this type of meditative writing. Worth every moment with it as part of anyone's prayer life.

Instructions for "the way" to actually live as a Christian in the world by a master of the interior life. Not without challenges but no one can grow if we don't challenge ourselves.

LOVE. I had this book when I was discerning a vocation with the Capuchin Franciscans years ago. Now I am happily married and it brings me much spiritual comfort. Excellent, sage advice. Pax.
I have loved THE WAY for a number of years, along with the FORGE and the FURROW. Traditional (in the best sense of the word) Catholic spirituality in easy to digest format yet leaving in the "Cross" ... not for the uncommitted or Sunday only Catholic but for those who really want to progress in their union iwth Christ and their love of Neighbor. This edition is excellent....some explanatory notes at the bottom of some pages, excellent readable type, nice format, index, scripture index......can't recommend it too highly.
