An Illustrated Life of St. Josemaria published
Through the Mountains, an illustrated volume in comic book format presenting the life of St. Josemaría, has been published in seven languages: English, French, German, Italian, Spanish, Catalan, and Dutch. The 80-page book was edited and printed in Belgium. The authors studied St. Josemaría’s life in depth in order to be able to illustrate it faithfully and exactly. Belgium has a world wide reputation for the production of bande dessinée (illustrated volumes) of this type.
His determination to find God in everything he did, his love for our Lady, and his total trust in an active communion of the saints are the aspects of St. Josemaría’s life that most influenced the authors during their creative work. “He is a communicator of love,” was the reaction of the script writer Paule Fostroy.
