Elisabeth Baca, Ecuador:
Just looking at her you felt moved to love her because she was full of God.
One day I received a phone call from Sr. Clare. She said, “I don’t know why I’m calling you, but I felt like I had to.” She invited me to spend Holy Week with them in Playa Prieta. It’s the best invitation I’ve ever received. There, at that Holy Week Encounter, I went to Confession after not having gone for ten years.
Spending time with the Home of the Mother is like being filled with love. Seeing the girls and the Sisters, you can’t help but want to love like they do. I would look at Valeria, and I couldn’t stop thinking about how beautiful she was. I don’t mean her physical beauty, I’m referring to her soul. Just looking at her you felt moved to love her because she was full of God. It was like seeing Our Lady and saying, “She is so beautiful!”
