Cristobal Beltran Zambrano, Ecuador: "Allow Jesus to be born in your heart, and don’t close the door to His Holy Mother.”
My sister, Magu (Maria Augusta), was completely given to pastoral social work. She would always offer her help to anyone who needed it and showed her joy of transmitting the Gospel with her life.
I remember when we went to a nursing home in Portoviejo. We went to have a Christmas party. She meditated the reading with enthusiasm and explained [to the elderly], “Touch your chest and feel your heart beat. Just as fast as your heart beats, Jesus is born in each one of us, offering us His infinite love.”
Magu concluded with these words, “Allow Jesus to be born in your heart, and don’t close the door to His Holy Mother.”
