Prayer to Saint Josemaría
O God, through the mediation of the Most Blessed Virgin Mary,
you granted countless graces to your priest Saint Josemaría,
choosing him as a most faithful instrument to found Opus Dei,
a way to holiness through daily work
and the ordinary duties of a Christian.
Grant that I also may learn to turn all the circumstances
and events of my life into opportunities to love you
and serve the Church,
the Pope and all souls,
with joy and simplicity,
lighting up the paths of the earth with faith and love.
Through the intercession of Saint Josemaría,
please grant me the favour I request…
