The Virgin Mary Guides My Life

Sr. Clare's Perpetual Vows

The Virgin Mary is so great! I don’t know how to explain how much good it does me to be with Her and just look at Her.

In this brief part of an email from Sr. Clare to Mother Ana Campo, Servant Sister General of the Servant Sisters of the Home of the Mother, we can observe Sr. Clare’s great love toward the Virgin Mary and her awareness that “She is the one who guides my life.”

The Virgin Mary is so great! I don’t know how to explain how much good it does me to be with Her and just look at Her. She spoils me in a way that leaves me speechless and makes me feel very, very small, because I realize that She is the one who guides my life.

I asked Her for the grace to be crazy about Her and to always do whatever She asks of me. There are things the Virgin Mary can ask of us that seem absurd in the eyes of the world, but I know I have to be willing to take that step and even “make a fool of myself” if She asks me to. She asked St. Bernadette to eat grass in the grotto. Did She ask something crazy or absurd? No. She knows what She is doing.
