of Discover St Josemaria Virtual Conference

Discover St. Josemaria.

The Discover Saint Josemaria conference is a virtual event organized by people who have taken the message of the saint to heart and are trying to live it in their day-to-day lives of work and family concerns.

This year the conference will explore deep friendship as life's gift and a grace from God. We will share practical ways of developing friendship in the family according to the teachings of St. Josemaría Escrivá.

St. Josemaria Escriva the founder Opus Dei, teaches how we can all strive to Holiness in our daily lives. He also emphasized the need for friendship with God and others as a valuable means towards sanctifying work, oneself and others.

“You cannot just be passive. You have to become a real friend of your friends — by helping them. First, with the example of your behaviour and then with your advice and with the influence that a close friendship provides.” - The Furrow pt. 731 by St. Josemaría Escrivá.
