In honor of the Feast Day of St. Josemaria on June 26, Fr. Donncha Ó hAodha reflects on the origin and meaning of St. Josemaria’s title, “Saint of Ordinary Life”, and invites us to contemplate what God is saying and revealing to us as we seek the company and intercession of St. Josemaria.
St. Josemaria said, “There is something holy, something divine, hidden in the most ordinary circumstances, and it’s up to each one of us to discover it.” Fr. Donncha, therefore, reminds us that the invitation of this feast day is to discover that something holy in the ordinary circumstances of our lives. And, that something is none other than “the living Christ, Jesus, close by us in our work, in our rest, in our families, in our friendships, in our social life, in our pains, in our sorrows, in our joys… whatever it is, the Lord is there with us.”
