I Have No Doubts

Valeria with Classmates

Despite all of the difficulties in my path, I am very happy and sure that I am doing God’s will.

We publish this fragment of a an email that Valeria wrote to Fr. Rafael Alonso on the Feast of the Epiphany 2016. Valeria had entered as an aspirant on October 15, 2015. On April 16, 2016, she would lose her life in the earthquake in Ecuador. Valeria does not doubt that she is doing God’s will by giving Him her life at 15 years old.

Dear Father,

I am writing to let you know that I am doing well. I hope that you are also well. Despite all of the difficulties in my path, I am very happy and sure that I am doing God’s will.

I don’t know if I am making progress or not. It is still hard for me to trust in God. I am reading a very good book called “Self-abandonment to Divine Love.” (Note: We suppose that it is the book by Slaowmir Biela). It is very good and it is helping me to trust in the Person (Valeria capitalized this word; she is speaking about the Lord), who really deserves my trust…

Father, going back to what I said before, I have always had a hard time seeing God’s will for my life clearly. That is why what you, or Mother, or my former say to me, is God’s will for me. Although I don’t understand, if they tell me to do something, I do it. I have always had a hard time seeing clearly, but now I have no doubts that I am doing what God wants. I know this because of the peace and joy that I have. Although sometime it’s hard to smile…(Remember Valeria’s e-mail to Father dated August 21, 2015, in which she explains: My Dominant Defect is Sadness)


(…) I would like to write more, but we are getting things ready because we are going to do something for the sisters for Epiphany.

Happy Feast of the Epiphany! Say hello to everyone.
