The Founder of Opus Dei. Volume II: God and Daring
Vázquez de Prada, Andrés

Language: English | Category: History & Biography | Audio Book: Not Available

This second volume of the three-volume biography of St. Josemaria covers one of the most remarkable periods of his life: from the outbreak of the civil war in 1936 to his departure for Rome in 1946. In Republican Spain fierce anti-Catholic persecution led St. Josemaria to do his priestly work in secret, fully aware that if caught, he would be executed – as were 6000 other priests. This book recounts the saint’s dangerous journey across the Pyrenees to the Nationalist zone, where he could exercize his priestly ministry more freely, his tireless labors to counter (with both heroic charity and determination) the slanders that threatened to overwhelm Opus Dei, and more. Here is an unforgettable picture of the saint’s activity during the years of crisis that threatened to obliterate his great gift to the church: Opus Dei.
