Summary

Alvaro del Portillo fue el colaborador más cercano y primer sucesor de San Josemaría Escrivá, el fundador del Opus Dei. La Iglesia Católica lo beatificó el 27 de septiembre de 2014. La beatificación es el paso previo a la canonización con la que se declara la santidad de una persona.
Saxum recoge la vida de Del Portillo: sus aventuras durante la Guerra Civil Española, su colaboración con Escrivá, su participación en el Concilio Vaticano II y sus años como prelado del Opus Dei.
Del Portillo ofrece un ejemplo atractivo de cómo vivir una vida auténticamente cristiana en las circunstancias más diversas. Es un modelo no solo de las virtudes específicamente cristianas de la fe, la esperanza y la caridad, sino también de las virtudes humanas que hacen a una persona buena y atractiva. Quizás el rasgo más llamativo de su personalidad fue su extraordinaria capacidad de hacer amigos con todo tipo de personas, desde el jardinero hasta el Papa Juan Pablo II, a quien le unió una amistad profunda.
Please note: This audiobook is in Spanish.

A contemporary saint life story

Alvaro del Portillo is perhaps one of the (soon-to-be) saints less valued and reknown, according to his own life testimony, always behind St Josemaria's steps. However, when you listen to this audiobook, you will discover not only a saint, a faithful man, an effective director life but the entire track of the Opus Dei to see the light from inception to its first stage consolidation. It is well documented and told in an agile manner, so the story is totally enjoyable while you learn from one key and have-to-know character of the Church current story.
