If you have followed Humble Handmaid for a while, you probably aren’t surprised to see a St. Josemaria quote today. He is one of my favorite saints.
God doesn’t promise us an easy life, but he does promise us a meaningful life. St. Josemaria’s writings helped me to understand something the Church has always taught: that Christ gave us a universal call to holiness, and that our ordinary work has everlasting meaning and purpose insofar as we learn to love God and others through it.
The miracle which God asks of you is to persevere in your Christian and divine vocation, sanctifying each day’s work; the miracle of turning the prose of each day into heroic verse by the love you put into your ordinary work. -St. Josemaria Escriva
