Works of St. Josemaría

The following translations of works of St. Josemaria have been published for the first time: Friends of God in Arabic; Furrow and Friends of God in Lithuanian, and Holy Rosary and The Way of the Cross in Latvian.

In addition, in Hong Kong there has been published, in traditional Chinese, the interview “Women in Social Life and in the Life of the Church,” included in Conversations with Saint Josemaría Escrivá, and a prayer book with the text of The Way of the Cross (without the points for meditation) and Holy Rosary.

In Peru a special edition of Holy Rosary for children has been published with illustrations by Carmen García Véliz.

The first Chilean edition of Conversaciones con Mons. Escrivá de Balaguer has also been published.


Works about St. Josemaría

The biography of the founder of Opus Dei by Michele Dolz (St. Josemaría Escrivá) has been published in Hong Kong in Chinese (first edition) and in English (second printing). In Chile the book has been re-edited with a new design, 50 new photographs, a report on the two miracles, and a chapter on the canonization. The book is offered for sale together with a DVD on the founder. The Lisbon publisher Lucerna has published the same book in Portuguese.

Another Portuguese publisher, Aletheia, has published the second edition of Uma Luz no Mundo, by Hugo de Azevedo, but now with the title St. Josemaría Escrivá.

Continuing with new publications in Portuguese, this time in Brazil, the publisher Indaia of São Paulo has published the second edition of the book by Francisco Faus, Sao Josemaría Escrivá no Brasil: esboços do perfil de um santo. This edition includes new photographs.

In Poznan, Poland, the book Przekroczyc Marzenia, the Polish version of Dream and your Dreams will Fall Short, has been published. In this work Fr. Pedro Casciaro presents some of his memories of St. Josemaría. The first edition of this book in Czech, entitled Ani Ve Snu, has also been made available to the public.

In St. Albans, England, the second volume of William Keenan’s biography of St. Josemaría was recently published under the title: The Path through the Mountains: St. Josemaria Escriva and the Origins of Opus Dei. In the first volume, he narrated the life of the founder of Opus Dei from his childhood until November of 1937. Now he continues from the middle of the Spanish Civil War up to his arrival in Rome in 1946.

In Slovenia, the publisher Novi Svet has published the Slovenian translation of 15 Days with St. Josemaría, by Guillaume Derville.

The publisher Edicep, in Valencia, has offered Spanish speakers a translation of Un Cammino attraverso il mondo, by John Wauck, an anthology of texts by the founder of Opus Dei with commentary.

Finally, among the new items deserving mention is iEscrivá, an iphone application which not only allows one to consult the published works of St. Josemaría in five languages (Spanish, English, Italian, French and German), but also permits the insertion of personal notes, the fruit of study or reflection. It was developed by the Computer Innovation School in Rome, a center for computer instruction and research.
