Talking to God

God Loves Us

The God of our faith is not a distant being, who contemplates our fate indifferently. He is a Father who loves his children ardently – a Creator God who overflows with love for those whom he creates. And he grants us the great privilege of being able to love, and so transcend the limits of what is temporary and passing.

Rest

Rest means recuperation: to gain strength, form ideals and make plans. In other words it means a change of occupation, so that you can come back later with a new impetus to your daily job.

A job for my daughter

I would like to testify that, thank God, through St Josemaria’s intercession, when we finished a novena my daughter got the job she was praying for so much. Blessed and praised be Thou O Lord for hearing my prayer!

A grant

I have been praying to God through St. Josemaria’s intercession for some time to get a scholarship in an important institution which offered the chance of a challenging career. In 2010 I applied to it without success.

Work

I spent about three years looking for work, but unsuccessfully. On the internet I found the novena to St. Joseph and one to St. Josemaria. After less than a month of praying, I obtained the job I wanted.
