Saintly Wisdom

From Saint Josemaría Escrivá:
It is not true that there is opposition between being a good Catholic and serving civil society faithfully. In the same way there is no reason why the Church and the State should clash when they proceed with the lawful exercise of their respective authorities, in fulfillment of the mission God has entrusted to them. Those who affirm the contrary are liars, yes, liars! They are the same people who honour a false liberty, and ask us Catholics "to do them the favour" of going back to the catacombs. (Furrow, 301)
Saint Josemaría Escrivá died in June 1975. Many years later we still find truth in his wisdom. First published in 1986, Furrow is a compilation of the Saint's spiritual reflections and meditations.
