The coat of arms of St. Josemaria Escriva

Yup.  That's right.  That's his coat-of arms below which I asked yesterday.

And here's some liturgical eye candy for you.

Here's the saint with the Servant of God, Paul VI.  St. Josemaria is wearing is ferraioulo, or clerical cape since he is in audience with the Pope.  This is worn in solemn non liturgical function.  But now, it is not obligatory even in audiences with the pope.  Photo courtesy of

Now here's something for you...
Here the saint is celebrating the Traditional Latin Mass assisted by two young Opus Dei priests.  I think this is right before the laity's Communion or before the Ecce Agnus Dei as the priests are already wearing their stoles.  The young priests are not concelebrating as there is NO concelebration in the TLM except during ordinations.

Lots of great photos of the saint in this website, where I got the same photo above.

  1. Wow! Did you know that his coat of arms is very similar to my country's c.o.a.?'HR'

    Wow! I'm still amazed that this great saint took chess-board to be his coat of arms, like the Croats did many centuries ago...
