A commemorative plaque honoring St. Josemaría in Logroño, Spain

On December 1, 2006, a plaque was affixed to the façade of the house at no. 12 Sagasta Street, in Logroño. It included a bas-relief of the founder of Opus Dei with the following words: “St. Josemaría Escrivá. lived with his family in this building from 1915 to 1918 (fourth floor) and from 1921 to 1925 (second floor).” The initiative came from the first deputy mayor of the city, who is in charge of the restoration of the historical heart of Logroño, and from the director of the city’s historical office.

On January 16, 2007, a plaque was also installed at the place where St. Josemaría, one winter morning, saw bare footprints in the snow.

The place is near a building of the Caja Rioja Foundation, on Marqués de San Nicolás Street. The Board of Directors of the Foundation approved, on December 21, 2006, the affixing of this memorial plaque with the following inscription: “St. Josemaría Escrivá. At this site, between December 1917 and January 1918, St. Josemaría Escrivá discovered his vocation of dedication to God, upon seeing the footprints left in the snow by the bare feet of a Carmelite religious walking along this street.”
