Escriva Mass Kit available

Each year, June 26 is the feast day of Opus Dei founder St. Josemaria Escriva (who died on that day in 1975), who was canonized in 2002.  This year, it will fall on a Thursday.
NOTE: I know that, by mentioning "Escriva" and "Opus Dei", there are some of you reading this who now have the "Imperial March" from Star Wars bouncing around inside your head, but stay focused, okay?
The St. Josemaria Institute is offering a "Feast Day Mass Kit" for priests that want to celebrate the feast day in their parishes.  The kit contains posters, prayer cards, a portrait of Escriva, and other items.  The kit is free, though they'll gladly accept donations to help defray the costs.

Even if priests don't want to order the kit, the proper prayers for St. Josemaria Escriva are available on the website in either English or Spanish (having been translated from the Latin).
