This series deals with the life of the founder of OPUS DEI, starting with his troubled childhood plagued by a malady declared incurable by the medics, yet marked by a miraculous recovery which occurred after his desperate parents brought him to the “Santuario della Madonna” (Sanctuary of the Madonna) in Torreciudad. The series also depicts other difficulties he faced, such as when he again demonstrated his faith and courage during the Spanish civil war, only to be forced into exile. As the series shows, it appeared nothing could ever diminish his strength and determination – not even the unthinkable prospect that his dreams not be fulfilled – such as his wish to present the entire world with the work of his congregation, or his desire to construct a great new Sanctuary of the Madonna in Torreciudad (to which he would later devote himself, the completion of which was to later coincide with his death).
