Following the footsteps of St. Josemaría in Madrid

A few days before World Youth Day, the web page josemariaescriva.info published a guide to sites in Madrid closely connected with the life of St. Josemaría. The information was divided into four itineraries, each with a map and an explanatory text: one for August 18, another for the 19th, and two for the 20th. The itineraries for each day began at a place close to where the gathering with the Pope would take place, so that the young people could participate in those gatherings and, either before or afterward, take a walk through the Madrid of St. Josemaría.

Among the places that the guide invited people to walk were the monastery of the Vincentians and the El Sotanillo café (first itinerary); the Foundation for the Sick, the apartment of the Escrivá’s on Martinez Campos street, the DYA Academy, the house of the Marquesa de Onteiro and the Porta Coeli asylum (the second); the General Hospital and the church of St. Elizabeth (the third); and the Bishop’s residence and the Basilica of St. Michael (the fourth). In many cases these sites no longer look like they did when St. Josemaría knew them.
