Publications about Blessed Josemaria and Opus Dei
In June the Italian translation of “Memories of Blessed Josemaria Escriva,” a book-length interview with Bishop Javier Echevarría, was published by Leonardo International. The Brazilian edition was also published in June. Earlier the Portuguese edition, entitled Lembrando o Beato Josemaria, was brought out by the publishing house Diel.
The German publishing house Adamas-Verlag has issued the German video of Alberto Michelini’s “It’s a Question of Faith,” under the title Nur eine Frage des Glaubens: Die Verehrung zum Seligen Josemaria Escriva. Recently it also brought out the German translation of From Now on I Have to be Strong, an account of the life of Montse Grases, written by Edith Zeltner.
Mexican pianist Margarita Murillo is the author of a recent book recounting her years in Opus Dei. The Spanish publisher is Rialp. Its title, A New Score, clearly reflects her walk of life. Also from Rialp is a similar book entitled, Sooner, More and Better. The author of the memoir is Lazaro Linares, sportsman and former painter.
Also recent is a biography, written by Mercedes Eguibar and published by Palabra Publishers, of Guadalupe Ortiz de Landazuri, one of the first Spanish women to earn a degree in chemistry. She belonged to Opus Dei and died with a reputation for holiness. So did her brother, Eduardo, a physician whose process of beatification is already under way.
