  • Message - Opus Dei
    The message of Opus Dei is that everyone can become a saint As the Second Vatican Council noted every baptized person is called to follow Jesus Christ by living according to the Gospel and making it known to others The aim of Opus Dei is to contribute to that evangelizing mission of the Church by promoting among Christians of all social classes a life fully consistent with their faith in the middle of the ordinary circumstances of their lives and especially through the sanctification of their work The following are some of the main features of the spirit of Opus Dei Divine filiation Divine filiation is the foundation of the spirit of Opus Dei said its founder St Josemaría Escrivá The Christian is a child of God by virtue of baptism Thus the formation provided by the Prelature seeks to foster among the Christian faithful a deep awareness of their being children of God and helps them act accordingly It fosters confidence in divine providence simplicity in their dialogue with God a deep awareness of the dignity of each human being and of the need for fraternity among all people a truly Christian love for the world and for all human realities created by God and a sense of calm and optimism Ordinary life It is in the midst of the most material things of the earth that we must sanctify ourselves serving God and all mankind said St Josemaría The family marriage work all of our activities are opportunities for dealing with and imitating Jesus Christ trying to practice charity patience humility diligence integrity cheerfulness and all the other human and Christian virtues Sanctifying work Sanctifying work means to work with the spirit of Jesus Christ to work competently and ethically with the aim of loving God and serving others and thus to sanctify the world from within making the Gospel present in all activities whether they be outstanding or humble and hidden In the eyes of God what matters is the love that is put into work not its human success Prayer and sacrifice The formation given by Opus Dei encourages prayer and sacrifice in order to sustain the effort to sanctify one s ordinary occupations Thus members strive to incorporate into their lives certain practices of Christian piety such as prayer daily Mass sacramental confession and reading and meditating on the Gospel Devotion to Our Lady occupies an important place in their hearts Also to imitate Jesus Christ they try to acquire a spirit of penance offering sacrifices particularly those that help them fulfill their duties faithfully and make life more pleasant for others things like renouncing small pleasures fasting almsgiving etc Unity of life St Josemaría explained that Christians working in the world should not live a kind of double life On the one hand an interior life a life of union with God and on the other a separate and distinct professional social and family life On the contrary There is just one life made

    with Christian life In addition they attend an annual retreat lasting three to five days Similar activities are also offered to the cooperators to young people and to anyone else who wishes to attend This formation is given in the centers of the Prelature and in other appropriate places For example a circle may be given at the home of one of the people who attend and a day of recollection may be held in a church whose parish priest permits it to be used for that purpose Personal apostolate Personal testimony is always the most important apostolate in Opus Dei It is an apostolate of witness of specific and effective help given to others at work and in the other circumstances of daily life a personal apostolate carried out through word and example As a result members apostolic work is not limited to specific fields such as education or care for the sick or disabled As the Catechism of the Catholic Church reminds us all Christians whatever their secular occupation may be ought to help to find Christian solutions to the problems of society and give constant witness to their faith Corporate apostolate Some faithful of the Prelature along with cooperators of Opus Dei and others undertake charitable or educational initiatives which entrust their spiritual and doctrinal orientation to the Prelature Among these apostolates are secondary schools universities women s centers medical clinics in underdeveloped areas schools for farm workers institutes for professional education student residences and cultural centers These initiatives are always set up to meet a social need in the city or country where they are located The Prelature does not involve itself in any for profit commercial or political ventures These initiatives are called corporate apostolates to distinguish them from the personal apostolate of each member which is Opus Dei s primary apostolate A corporate apostolate is usually owned by a civil not for profit corporation and is managed by its own board of directors and administrative staff The Prelature takes on responsibility for its spiritual and doctrinal orientation guaranteeing that this orientation will be faithful to Catholic teachings Despite this Christian orientation these apostolates are open to persons of all religions and the legitimate freedom of conscience of all those involved is carefully respected Each undertaking is financed in the same way as other similar institutions tuition residential fees grants donations etc Given the type of work they undertake as non profit institutions corporate apostolates usually require substantial donations from the faithful of Opus Dei cooperators and others Frequently they also receive official subsidies from government agencies and grants from private foundations and companies In addition to the corporate apostolates there are other institutions run by faithful of the Prelature and their friends in which the Prelature does not take on the responsibility for the spiritual and doctrinal orientation but does give some help in this area e g by supplying a chaplain for the institution Examples of corporate apostolates The University of Navarra founded
