Work of God

Regarding Opus Dei your host remains agnostic. Regarding its founder, St. Jose Maria Escrivá, we harbor no such ambivalence. Many official and unofficial videos are available on the internet; watch, and you will have no doubt.

We see now that Academy Award nominee Roland Joffé, director of The Mission, has written and directed a movie about the saint, to be released next year, called "There Be Dragons." While Joffé himself does not appear to be a believer, "The Mission" was thoroughgoingly Catholic.  Set during the Spanish Civil War, the trailer makes it appear to be an action flick, filled with intrigue and darkness, with more than a splash of the supernatural.

It's impossible to speak to the totality of "the Work," but the guys I've met who are affiliated with Opus Dei in the D.C. area have been some of the most sincere and faithful Catholics I've ever met. I'm by no means an expert on Opus Dei, and may well be wrong, but the results Opus Dei has produced in D.C. have been impressive to me.
