...
Fr. Enrique Colom lectures in moral theology (justice and the social teaching of the Church) at the Pontifical University of the Holy Cross, Rome. He first met St Josemaria in October 1960, a few months after joining Opus Dei.
Over the following ten years he met St Josemaria almost every year, taking part in gatherings with him when St Josemaria visited Spain. In 1971 Colom moved to Rome to continue his theology studies. He was ordained in 1974 and remained in Rome for the next two years. During this time he saw St Josemaria more often, usually in gatherings or get-togethers, up until St Josemaria's death in June 1975. Starting in 1976, Colom spent several years doing pastoral work in Chile, South America, and then returned to Rome to teach theology. He is a Consultor to the Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace, and was contributing editor of their Compendium of the Social Teaching of the Church.
In the following interview he talks about St Josemaria as he knew him through personal encounters and through his writings.
Interviewer: Did you ever think that you were in the presence of a saint? Fr. Enrique Colom: My personal contact with St Josemaria was limited. I think I knew him better through his writings, his guidance of Opus Dei, and the spirit he passed on to us. From what I learned of him in those ways I always thought he was a saint, because what he was really concerned about was our union with God and our service to others, for love of God. This was always clearly noticeable when you met him, in the things he said and did. His awareness of being in God's presence, and his attention to people, showed in the ordinary little indications he gave, or ordinary things he did. He had the very deep-rooted idea that holiness on this earth does not mean being free from defects. He said in Christ is Passing By (no. 76): "I have never liked biographies of saints which naively - but also with a lack of sound doctrine - present their deeds as if they had been confirmed in grace from birth.
