“Don't judge without having heard both sides. Even persons who think themselves virtuous very easily forget this elementary rule of prudence.”
Josemaría Escrivá, The Way of The Cross
“Compromise is a word found only in the vocabulary of those who have no will to fight.”
Josemaría Escrivá
“God is here. This truth should fill our lives, and every Christmas should be for us a new and special meeting with God, when we allow his light and grace to enter deep into our soul.”
Josemaría Escrivá, Christ Is Passing by
“You're bored? That's because you keep your senses awake and your soul asleep.”
Josemaría Escrivá
“If I love, there will be no hell for me.”
Josemaría Escrivá

Josemaría Escrivá
“Christian optimism is not a sugary optimism, nor is it a mere human confidence that everything will turn out all right. It is an optimism that sinks its roots into an awareness of our freedom, and the sure knowledge of the power of grace. It is an optimism that leads us to make demands on ourselves, to struggle to respond at every moment to God's call.”
Josemaría Escrivá
“You were very hurt at being slighted. That means you are forgetting too easily who you are.”
Josemaría Escrivá
“How I wish your bearing and conversation were such that, on seeing or hearing you, people would say: 'This man reads the life of Jesus Christ.”
Josemaría Escrivá, The Way
“282 Paradoks: Kesucian itu lebih mudah dicapai daripada ilmu pengetahuan, tetapi lebih mudah menjadi orang terpelajar daripada menjadi orang kudus.
283 Hiburan sekadar untuk mengalihkan perhati-an: Engkau memerlukannya! Buka matamu lebar-lebar sehingga gambaran-gambaran segala benda masuk, atau tutuplah matamu sebagai akibat dari kepicikanmu.
Tutuplah matamu terhadap segala hall Miliki ke-hidupan batin dan engkau akan melihat keajaiban dari dunia yang lebih baik, dunia baru dengan segala warna dan perspektif yang tak pernah terbayangkan sebelumnya dan engkau akan mengenal Allah. Engkau akan dapat merasakan kelemahan-kelemahan¬mu, dan engkau akan lebih menyerupaimu Allah ... dengan keilahian yang akan membuatmu lebih me¬rupakan saudara-saudaramu sesama manusia, ketika engkau menjadi lebih dekat dengan Allah Bapamu.
284 Cita-cita: supaya aku menjadi balk, dan agar orang-orang lain menjadi lebih balk dari diriku.
285 Pertobatan adalah suatu usaha sekejap. Penyucian adalah suatu usaha untuk seumur hidup.
286 Tak ada sesuatu yang lebih baik di dunia ini, selain daripada hidup dalam rahmat Allah.
287 Kemurnian dalam niat: engkau akan selalu memilikinya, bila engkau selalu dan di dalam segala hal berusaha untuk menyenangkan Allah.
288 Masuklah ke dalam luka-luka Kristus yang tersalib. Di situ engkau akan belajar menjaga indramu, engkau akan memiliki kehidupan batin dan dengan tak henti-hentinya engkau mempersembahkan kepada Bapa penderitaan Allah kita Yesus Kristus dan pen¬deritaan Bunda Maria, untuk menebus dosamu dan dosa semua manusia.
289 Ketidaksabaranmu yang mulia untuk meng-abdi Allah tidak mengecewakan-Nya. Akan tetapi, ketidak-sabaran itu akan menjadi sia-sia bila tidak disertai dengan penyempurnaan yang efektif dalam tingkah lakumu sehari-hari.
290 Memperbaiki diri. Sedikit demi sedikit setiap hari. Itulah yang harus menjadi usahamu yang tetap jika engkau benar-benar ingin menjadi orang kudus.”
Josemaría Escrivá
“After seeing how many people waste their lives, their whole lives (tongues wagging, wagging, wagging, and all the inevitable consequences), silence seems preferable to me, and more necessary than ever. And I well understand, Lord, why we have to give an account of all our idle words.”
Josemaría Escrivá, The Way
“The enemy: Will you obey... even in this 'ridiculous' little detail? You, with God's grace: I will obey... even in this 'heroic' little detail.”
Josemaría Escrivá, Camino
“A man who fails to love the Mass fails to love Christ. We must make an effort to 'live' the Mass with calm and serenity, with devotion and affection.”
Josemaría Escrivá

“Singkatnya: rasa terima kasihmu harus diwujudkan ke dalam suatu niat yang konkret.
299 Kristus wafat bagimu. Engkau apa yang
harus kaulakukan bagi Kristus?
300 Pengalaman pribadimu—kekesalan, kegelisah¬an, kepahitan itu—mengajarkanmu suatu kebenaran sabda Kristus: Tidak seorang pun dapat mengabdi kepada dua majikan.”
Josemaría Escrivá
“If you have so many defects, why are you surprised to find defects in others?”
Josemaría Escrivá
“What conversations! What vulgarity and what dirt! And you have to associate with them, in the office, in the university, in the operating-theatre..., in the world.

Ask them if they wouldn't mind stopping, and they laugh at you. Look annoyed, and they get worse. Leave them, and they continue.

This is the solution: first pray for them, and offer up some sacrifice; then face them like a man and make use of the 'strong language apostolate'. — The next time we meet I'll tell you — in a whisper — a few useful words.”
Josemaría Escrivá, The Way
“There is need for a crusade of manliness and purity to counteract and undo the savage work of those who think that man is a beast.

And that crusade is a matter for you.”
Josemaría Escrivá, The Way
“You should realize that God wants you to be glad and that, if you do all you can, you will be happy, very, very happy, although you will never for a moment be without the Cross. But that Cross is no longer a gallows. It is the throne from which Christ reigns. And at his side, his Mother, our Mother too. The Blessed Virgin will obtain for you the strength that you need to walk decisively in the footsteps of her Son.5 Alvaro del Portillo”
Josemaría Escrivá, Way Of The Cross, Centennial Edition
“I find my pleasure in doing thy will, my God, and thy law dwells deep within my heart.”
