What is Opus Dei

Opus Dei’s mission is to promote a profound awareness of the universal call to holiness among men and women from all walks of life, moving them to lead a life consistent with their faith and to contribute to the evangelization of every sphere of society. In short, its mission is to spread the message that all Christians have been called by God to seek holiness both in and through their daily work, family life and social relations as well as to make the Gospel known throughout the world.

To follow this spirituality means to exercise human and Christian virtues whilst carrying out one’s work in the ordinary course of one’s life, as co-creator and co-redeemer with God, following the example of Jesus Christ.
