Everything that is done out of Love acquires greatness and beauty.– St. Josemaria Escriva
The Psychology Perspective
Love is the most powerful of emotions. Through it, we harness the power of creativity. St. Josemaria Escriva draws attention to the power that love has to make anything perceived be a remnant of beauty and greatness.
His principle work was the initiation, expansion, and government of the Catholic order Opus Dei. Through this organization, Escriva sought to help Catholics learn to sanctify themselves by secular work, that ordinary work that drives our day to day life, from which no spiritual gain may be had, but we can find the beauty within nevertheless.
In this St. Josemaria Escriva reminds us to find the beauty within the mundane, for it is in the dirty work, that oftentimes we find our truest cleansing from love.
Love is a universal force. Through this value, we are able to see the glowing embers that burn within the white heaped ash our day to day existence oftentimes produces.
