Today In Fact, 9 January

On this day in 1902, Josemaria Escriva, the Marquis of Peralta was born in Spain. The founder of Opus Dei was either a humble saintly man or scheming, petty-minded Fascist. It seems he was able to impress people in power and build an influential and powerful organization within the Catholic Church. A wise man once said “you will know them by their fruits”. I think we will wait a long time before the Opus Dei tree produces any fruit worth eating.
