Furrow

Like The Way, Furrow is the fruit of St. Josemaría’s rich interior life and extensive experience as a pastor. Aphoristic and perfect for meditation, Furrow was written in order to encourage and ease personal prayer.

"May we profit by them and be moved by them to leave behind us in our life a deep and fertile 'furrow', left by our deeds." - Escriva

Another wonderful collection of aphorisms (or proverbs, if you prefer), some more lengthy than those in The Way. A mostly different collection of topics from The Way, each chapter concludes by pointing to Mary as an example of the virtue indicated. I think I like Furrow a bit better than "The Way" but repeated reading may change my mind.

Otra fantástica recopilación de máximas de san Josemaría Escrivá de Balaguer, útiles para ir desgranando poco a poco en la oración. Excepto la número 1000, claro. :-D

“han encontrado a Cristo no pueden cerrarse en su ambiente: ¡triste cosa sería ese empequeñecimiento! Han de abrirse en abanico para llegar a todas las almas.
