Turning prose into poetry
~Saint Josemaría Escrivá

"When you started your ordinary work again, something like a groan of complaint escaped you: “It’s always the same!”
And I told you: “Yes, it’s always the same. But that ordinary job — which is the same one your fellow workers do — has to be a constant prayer for you. It has the same loveable words, but a different tune each day.”
It is very much our mission to turn the prose of this life into poetry, into heroic verse."
Furrow, 500

May this summer’s day be a day of poetry, a hymn of heroic love in your heart!
