Loving and Smiling Always

Valeria con la hna. Ruth Mª y niños

I want to be good, very good and humble. I want to fight and never give up in spite of all the difficulties. It isn’t easy to follow Christ.

This is the second email that Valeria wrote to Fr. Rafael. It was written on August 29, 2015. Valeria reveals the secret of her spiritual path: imitate the Virgin Mary, Our Mother, in her way of praying and of doing God’s will. Valeria sums everything up with these important words: loving and smiling always. It is important to keep in mind that Valeria was only 15 when she wrote these things.

Dear Father,

Thank you for praying for me, please continue to do so. Now I feel calmer and more secure. Yes, Father, I try to pray the same way Our Lady did and to do what God wants of me like she did: loving and smiling always. I think that that’s why I love the Servant Sisters so much, because they remind me of Our Lady with their smile and their way of life… When I met the Home, I thought that maybe I was attached to the sisters. Later, I saw that it wasn’t so, and that my heart was made for that [life]. That’s why I can’t imagine myself in any other place than with the Servant Sisters. That, Father, is why I want to be good, very good and humble. I want to fight and never give up in spite of all the difficulties. It isn’t easy to follow Christ. The world is very attractive, but He deserves everything from me because He has done so much for me. That is what helps me to keep fighting and smiling. They [Jesus and Mary] don’t deserve to be abandoned by me, I can’t do that to them. Moreover, He has a plan for me, and I wouldn’t be happy anywhere else.

Your right when you say that God and His Mother are with me ALWAYS. In Puyo [Amazon missions] Our Lady seemed very present to me. She reminded me every day that she was with me and that I didn’t have to be afraid. It’s good to remember that every once in a while. Thank you!

Father, I want to open my heart wide so that the Lord can do whatever He wants with me. Thank you for your advice, it helps me a lot.

Say "hi" to Mother Ana for me. I love you and pray a lot for you both.

Valeria
