    Rick Santorum traveled in 2002 to Rome to speak at a centenary celebration of the birth of Saint Josemaría Escrivá, founder of Opus Dei. He and his wife were invested as Knight and Dame of Magistral Grace of the Knights of Malta in a ceremony at St. Patrick's Cathedral in New York on November 12, 2004.
    Women numeraries are urged to sleep on a plank until they are 40 years old. Once a week, usually on Saturday, numeraries recite a prayer while flogging themselves with whips; and also at regular intervals wear a “chilice”, a device to inflict pain, consisting of a metal chain with sharp tips that prick into the upper thigh. This practice of Self-flaggelation is embarrassing to Opus Dei members, who dismiss this as something analogous to strenuous Jogging and exercise required to keep the body fit. Self-flaggelation is an exercise of the soul, they claim.
