Archbishop celebrates feast day of founder of Opus Dei

St. Josemaria Escriva showed Gospel's beauty to 'tepid believers to live in the joy of faith'
Anne Marie Abraham wrote a story in the July 1 B.C. Catholic about the feast day of St. Josemaria Escriva:
One man recently travelled a long way to participate in the Mass at Holy Rosary Cathedral. Edward Mungai, a business teacher at the University of Strathmore in Nairobi, Kenya, flew all the way to Vancouver to celebrate the feast of St. Josemaria Escriva de Balaguer.

"I have a lot of respect for St. Josemaria," said Mungai. The university he works at was founded by Opus Dei missionaries sent to Kenya by St. Josemaria, the founder of the Catholic institution, to establish the first multicultural college in Kenya.

Mungai, who came to take up a position as visiting business professor at the University of British Columbia until December, arrived in Vancouver the day of the celebration.
