"These global crises are crises of saints." This phrase was written by Saint Josemaría Escrivá in the thirties of last century. As a saint he had all the reason, even more reason than a saint.
It is not only that we lack great saints (we have Saint Josemaría Escrivá, Saint Francisco Javier or Saint Teresa of Jesus) but we lack the holiness to others. But I am not referring to the holiness of great works or miracles, but the holiness in small things, in the everyday. Saint Josemaría proposes to place Jesus Christ in the peak of all human activities and sanctify ourselves in small things of every day: work, family and human relationships.
I will give you a small example: because of different issues, I have to go through the procedure in another city and I have to go to a back office.
I am sometimes attended by phone and other personally by a lady or young lady. She is the education itself with order and good willingness; she is also effective in her work. When she say goodbye by phone or personally always gives me thanks but I must do this because she makes procedures for me. Then I ask me: “can I do my job better?”
Unfortunately, it is more and more common to see the botch around us, from big projects that born wrong to the sweeper that leaves the half of the trash on the floor. As human beings, we are limited and perfection is impossible. Despite all our efforts, the work does sometimes not go well. But, do we put all our efforts?
It would be enough that all who have work and those who have not made every our effort in all human activities to start to see at least the beginning of the end of the crisis. And it is not needed to offer almost nothing to God.
