Opus Dei Video

I started this website with the idea of using it as a mechanism to evangelize the spirituality of Opus Dei and am still trying to find my voice for it. That’s a big part of why I’m not posting regularly. However, I’m going to continue to try to get into a rhythm.

I haven’t even looked at the Opus Dei website recently but thought I had better visit there more often. One of the interesting things they have a is a nice video you can watch with Doug Hinderer, a corporate executive who talks about growing up, finding Opus Dei, family issues, and misconceptions about Opus Dei.

    One website you SHOULD visit more often is the Opus Dei Awareness Network website
    Escriva was a fraud and there is so much evidence to back this up it is embarrassing.

    I also recommend most enthusiastically to you
    Beyond the Threshold: A Life in Opus Dei. By Maria del Carmen Tapia. Continuum. 364 pp. $29.95.
    This book, written by a most wonderful humble soul who was and still is today a victim of Opus Dei, served Escriva for over 20 years, was imprisioned in Opus Dei headquarters and escaped to tell her tale is a MUST read to really understand the TRUTH about this quirky organisation that profits and grows through the demise and servitude of it’s helpless victims.
    I call them ‘helpless’ because spitituality and holiness is used to brainwash and trap them.

    Beyond the Threshold: A Life in Opus Dei. By Maria del Carmen Tapia. Continuum. 364 pp. $29.95. (available from all the Amazon type of groups etc. )

    …and how did Escriva manage to fool the church and the vatican? Ask yourself, What were among the few parting words that Jesus left with us? “…be alert, for even the elite will be fooled”

    I’m sorry to hear of your concerns. I’ve been a cooperator with Opus Dei for quite a few years. I’ve visited multiple centers around the world and participated in St. Josemaria’s cannonization. He most definitely was not a fraud. I recommend you read the excellent 3 volume biography on his life titled, “The Founder of Opus Dei.” You can find it at Scepter Publishers (

    May God bless you.
