A photo biography
“With each photograph, a small piece of history.” This was the idea that inspired a new book with photos from St. Josemaría’s life, published in Italy by Lindau publishers: San Josemaría Escrivá: Una biografia per immagini del fondatore dell’Opus Dei. The author, Bruno Mastroianni, has worked in the field of communication for several years. Besides publishing frequently in the press, he is a university professor.
The book covers the successive stages in St. Josemaría’s life—childhood, vocation, foundation and development of the Work, apostolic trips. Several pages are devoted to Bishop Álvaro del Portillo, first successor of St. Josemaría, and to the history of Opus Dei in Italy.
