God and Daring: The Life of St. Josemaria Escriva
The Catholic religious organization Opus Dei has long been a subject of public fascination. Its supporters say that it has reinvigorated Catholicism, by showing ordinary men and women how they can achieve holiness in their everyday lives.
Its members—some 90,000 men and women in 66 countries—say that Opus Dei enables them to deepen their spirituality while remaining fully engaged with the world around them. In 2002, Pope John Paul II declared the group’s founder, the Spanish priest Josemaria Escriva, to be a saint.
