She treated me as if she had known me forever

Denisse Muñoz Alcivar, Ecuador:

Denisse met Jazmina three years ago, and she remembers her as the first girl who greeted her when she came to the HM meetings.

I met Jazmina when I met the Home of the Mother, three years ago. She was the first person who talked to me when I arrived for the meeting. She treated me as if she had known me forever. With each girl that came to the Home, she was always very caring and she made us feel welcome in the group. She was always so cheerful. Each time I arrived for an activity with the Home, I could hear Jazmina’s enthusiastic voice shouting my name, “Denisse!”

There was something about her that made each person she met love her immediately. I think it was because of her dedication to others. She was so kind! She was one of those people who transmitted that joy that she always had in her gaze whenever you looked at her, even if you were feeling sad.

The day I found out she had died, I was very sad for not having been able to go to her funeral. But in an instant I had an unexplainable experience: I remember I felt an immense grace, an indescribable joy, that same joy I felt when I would see Jazmina, joyfully giving her life to the Lord.

I know that she is happy for having given a generous “Yes” to the Lord, without holding anything back.

Jazmina’s life has made me want to love the Lord and Our Lady with my whole life, so that He may be my universe just like He was for her, and so that I can have the same happiness that she had in serving the Lord.
