Saint Josemaría Escrivá, "It is Not Enough to Be Good"

Saint Josemaría Escrivá
Today it is not enough for men and women to be good. Moreover, whoever is content to be nearly good, is not good enough. It is necessary to be 'revolutionary'. Faced by hedonism, faced by the pagan and materialistic wares that we are being offered, Christ wants objectors! - rebels of Love!
— St. Josemaria Escriva

O God, through the mediation of Mary our Mother, you granted your priest Saint Josemaría countless graces, choosing him as a most faithful instrument to found Opus Dei, a way of sanctification in daily service and in the fulfillment of the Christian's ordinary duties. Grant that I may learn to turn all the circumstances and events of my life into occasions of loving You and serving the Church, the Pope and all souls with joy and simplicity, lighting up the pathways of this earth with faith, hope and love, and living each moment in imitation of Christ. Amen.
