One of the young men who accompanied St. Josemaria Escriva on his  escape to freedom during the Spanish Civil War was Tomas Alvira. He  wished to follow the founder of Opus Dei in a life of apostolic  dedication, but as a married, rather than a single, person. St Josemaria advised him to wait and, at the right time, he could become  part of Opus Dei as well as be a family man with wife and children,  which happened within 10 years. This is the story of the life and adventures of Tomas and his wife Paquita, who raised a large family and whose cause of holiness is now progressing through the approval process of the Catholic Church
