Everyday holiness with St Josemaria Escriva - be a saint!
I am a big fan of St Josemaria Escriva. I find his short sayings very helpful when feeling unmotivated in the spiritual life, then I read a small quote by him and he is packed with so much gusto and energy!
Some times it can be very easy to get caught up in speculation or mystical idealism that makes it hard to practice the faith in everyday life. Other times faith can be reduced to moralism without any supernatural aspect. We can get caught up in culture wars, liturgy wars, left wing vs right wing, Thomist vs Ressourcement but we forget that at the end of the day, it is all about becoming a SAINT.
St Josemaria is great at reminding us this, sainthood lies in everyday life.
