1975

Josemaría Escrivá died in Rome. A Spanish priest, he founded Opus Dei in 1928. He was beatified in 1992 and canonized in 2002. In his preaching, he helped students and intellectuals understand that they could serve God in their studies and research, seeking God in their daily work. He wrote in The Way: “An hour of study, for a modern apostle, is an hour of prayer. — If you are to serve God with your mind, to study is a grave obligation for you” (nn. 335-336).
