Welcome to the Joseph Muzquiz website.
This site is dedicated to spreading knowledge about Fr. Joseph Muzquiz whose cause for canonization was opened in the Archdiocese of Boston in 2011.
Sent by St. Josemaria Escriva, the founder of Opus Dei, Fr. Joseph left his native Spain in 1949 to begin Opus Dei's apostolic work in the United States. Over the course of many years he came to know and help thousands of people. Among them he developed a reputation for holiness.
New bulletin for Father Joseph Muzquiz's cause of canonization.
The Prelature’s Office for the Causes of Saints in New York recently published a new issue of the bulletin for the cause of canonization of Father Joseph Muzquiz.
In the main article, dealing with Fr. Joseph’s veneration for the Pope, Michael Barrett writes, “Anything having to do with the Pope interested him…He meditated on (his) ideas … in his personal prayer, and he gave them particular emphasis in his preaching and talks.” The article centers on the 1979 visit of St. John Paul II to the United States. It opens a window into Father Joseph’s deep and practical devotion for the person of the Holy Father.
The bulletin also includes a selection of recent favors obtained through the intercession of Father Joseph.
The bulletin concludes with a report on the closing session of the diocesan phase of Father Joseph’s cause on May 22, 2014. During the ceremony, Cardinal Seán O’Malley, Archbishop of Boston, said, “Father Muzquiz showed us that the virtue of everyday heroism can be achieved by all people of good faith who open their heart and soul to the gift of God’s graces.”
