The first biography of Father Joseph Múzquiz

Fr. Joseph Múzquiz was one of the first priests of Opus Dei. He began its apostolic work in the United States and died in Massachusetts in 1983.

The historian John F. Coverdale has written a book about his life, published by Scepter Publishers. Entitled Putting Down Roots, the book briefly sketches the early years of the young engineer, his contact with Opus Dei, his ordination as a priest and his efforts to begin the Work in Canada, Switzerland, Japan and, above all, in the United States. The author describes the intense activity of Father Joseph and his tenacity in opening the first centers, contacting families and university students, etc., with very little money and equally little command of English or knowledge of local customs, but always with great confidence in the will of God and the prayers of St. Josemaría.

After his death, hundreds of families came to pray at his wake in the church of St. Aidan in the Boston suburb of Brookline. Since then many people have begun to go to his intercession.
