Today, June 26, the Church celebrates the feast of St. Josemaría Escrivá. The saint, whom St. John Paul II called "the saint of the ordinary," was the founder of Opus Dei, a path of sanctification within the Church that has helped many Christians around the world to encounter Christ in their daily occupations.
St. Josemaría maintained a great friendship with Don Félix Granda, with whom he shared, in addition to his condition as a priest, a particular vision of beauty in the liturgy. Both understood sacred art as an element that should promote emotion and transmit Christ.
There have been many occasions on which commissions for paintings, carvings or sculptures of St. Josemaría have arrived at our workshops. Today, the day of his celebration, we compile some of them.
