The stories are inspirational, but also funny, and strike a chord in so many ways. I also learned, as Jane Reckart did, that it didn't matter that I didn't fit because God made me the way he did for a reason. Jeanne Murray's story also resonated with me - I have always been a bit skeptical, but, like her, have found that these are real people - like you and me. I have both of those stories marked with Post-it notes to easily re-read them when I need a little personal boost.
This book will be very interesting to people who want to know what Opus Dei is all about or what makes the women members of Opus Dei "tick". It is also very good to give a realistic view of the Prelature to those who do not know it, letting them see that the members are truly diverse and as real as you and me.
The Women of Opus Dei reveals to the reader the diversity and wide range of professions and the varying educational backgrounds held by the members. This is a highly qualified, professional and well educated group practicing service to others quietly and with focused determination. The experiences are drawn from women who are wives, mothers, business leaders, caregivers, immigrants, and women who are celibate as well.
If there have ever been misunderstandings about Opus Dei, these clear and extremely sincere essays and interviews reflect the personal spirituality, integrity, and clarity of purpose held by each of these members. These essays underscore the calm sense of opportunity of service each day brings to these members as they live the love of God.
