Web page on the writings of Saint Josemaria

The web page www.Escriváworks.org offers the internet user access to the nine published works of St. Josemaría Escrivá. These includes books for meditation such as The Way, Furrow, The Forge, Holy Rosary and Via Crucis; volumes of homilies, such as Friends of God, Christ Is Passing By, and In Love with the Church, and a collection of interviews: Conversations with Josemaría Escrivá. The works of St. Josemaría can now be consulted in nine languages: Dutch, English, French, German, Italian, Polish, Portuguese (with a separate version for Brazil), Spanish, and Swedish. Japanese and Russian versions are currently in preparation. Besides the complete text, the web page offers a brief synopsis of each book, a subject index, and an index for scriptural citations.

The web page also includes a search engine for specific words or phrases in the writings of the founder of Opus Dei. Thus one can search for specific texts, for example, on prayer, the Eucharist, marriage preparation, or help for the needy. In addition, the visitor can create a private folder on the web to hold the brief texts of the saint that he wishes to keep grouped together. There are also links to other related pages, such as the official web page of Opus Dei, the Bulletin Romana, and the one dedicated to St. Josemaría.

Romana, n. 38, January-June 2004, p. 71.
