St. Josemaria Escriva
Our Inspiration

The spiritual guidance of the activities run by EAEA is entrusted to Opus Dei, a personal prelature of the Catholic Church founded by St Josemaría Escriva.

St Josemaría has always taught that a Christian should do all honest human work, be it intellectual or manual, with the greatest human perfection (professional competence) and with Christian perfection (for love of God’s will and service to mankind).

The spirit of St Josemaría has inspired thousands of people to make their work serve the spiritual and material good of their fellow-citizens.

It is an inspiration that has spurred us in EAEA to carry socially oriented activities, which are selected in the light of specific necessities of the particular area where they are to be carried out. Moreover, these activities are open to people of all races and religious beliefs.
