Would Our Mother like That?

Letra de Jazmina

Laura Mero Arteaga, Ecuador:  She just looked at me and smiled, but that gaze had a big impact on me, because it was so filled with affection and expressed such a great love. It was as if she had known me for years. It was a motherly gaze.

Laura Mero Arteago from Ecuador tells us how much Jazmina helped her, and how much she continues to help her, even avoiding her from committing a mortal sin.

I remember Jazmina with a huge smile. She truly showed the joy that overpowered her soul. When I met the Home of the Mother, what drew my attention more than anything was the joy of this place. The person I remember most is Jazmina. I was impressed by how she was always so happy and the peculiar way that she brought me to the Virgin Mary. She always encouraged me to continue going to the activities of the Home of the Mother in order to get to know the Lord. 

I remember one day that I went to the sisters’ house and she had just arrived. It had been a while since I had seen her, and I gave her a big hug. She just looked at me and smiled, but that gaze had a big impact on me, because it was so filled with affection and expressed such a great love. It was as if she had known me for years. It was a motherly gaze.


At my first summer camp, I had the grace that she was my team leader. I lived it well, thanks to her self-surrender, because she helped us stay together and help each another. I just looked at her, and seeing how she gave herself completely encouraged me to give myself, too. 

Whenever I wasn’t doing so well, she was there, with the words that helped me to continue. Even though I didn’t see Jazmina very often, whenever I wasn’t doing well and when I wanted to leave everything, she was there. It was as if Our Lady sent her at that very moment so that she would help me. We almost never talked, it was enough that she asked me, “How are you?” And with that she knew what she had to say to me. 

The last time I saw her was 10 days before the earthquake, after Mass. We talked for a moment, and then she said goodbye and said to me, “Be good and faithful. I hope to see you soon.” And she gave me a big hug.

I feel as if she’s with me, and I see that she’s doing a lot of good, especially with the girls. I remember one time, when I was about to fall into mortal sin, I felt as if she was with me, looking at me and saying to me, “You should be good. Would Our Mother like that?” 

On the handkerchief of the summer camp of 2016, she wrote a quote for each girl. On mine she wrote, “Don’t be afraid to fight. It’s worth it. You’ll win Heaven, at Mary’s side forever.” Jazmina lived that quote. Now she is probably very happy to be at Mary’s side forever.
