Ordinary Work, Extraordinary Grace – Opus Dei, St Josemaria Escriva, and Scott Hahn

Our conversations with Dr. Scott Hahn are always fascinating and enlivening, but this one in particular soared higher than others. Dr. Hahn shared a very special aspect of his life – his love for the spirituality of Opus Dei.  He shares with us how this charism, based on the insights and teachings of the movements founder St. Josemaria Escriva, changed his life.

Reviews of the book:

“If you want the real story about Opus Dei, Scott Hahn will give you the shocking truth—the shock of a Gospel life lived effectively in the midst of the world. Like all his other books, this one will challenge your view of the Christian life.”

—Father Benedict J. Groeshcel, C.F.R., author of Arise From Darkness

Scott Hahn’s abilities as a scholar, teacher, and writer are already well known. But the story of his journey to Opus Dei that emerges here, and his portrait of The Work remind us that each of us, no matter what our vocation or state of life, is called to holiness. This is compelling reading.”
—Charles J. Chaput, O.F.M. Cap., Archbishop of Denver

  1. Everything you have on Discerning Hearts is always what I need . . . and want. Often I come here just to pray – it is a prayer room for me as I don’t get out a lot. The Rosary is always wonderful and then, too, the Novenas are so great for me as I don’t get out with groups. You are like my Rome Home . . . and I love you for it.

    Thanks for being there for us. You are faithful. You are also timeless as I can go back and do something again and again.

    My Love to you and Bruce!
