Michael and Javier

From Peru and El Salvador, we share two songs dedicated to Sister Clare.

From Peru

Listening to the story of the conversion of Sister Clare Crockett, I was inspired to compose a song about how our plans are not ours, but God's. Just listen to it and let it in.

"All or Nothing" for God— always everything!!! I hope you like it!!!

From El Salvador

I met Sister Clare this 2020 in the midst of lockdown through the documentary All or Nothing. I felt identified with her immediately, because when I was younger I also wanted to be a famous musician. I had been away from God for a long time and the impact that the documentary had on me was that, even though I had already returned to the ways of the Lord, I reconsidered the vocation to the priesthood. With guidance, I discerned that my call is to marriage. However, Sr. Clare has left me with a deep sense of Christian commitment: that radicalism we have been called to.

Such has been the impact that knowing her (so to speak) has left on me that I now see and consider her as my older sister who counsels and guides me, laughs with me at times while I read the book Alone with Christ Alone. I deeply believe that the communion of saints is real, and in a way I am very convinced of her presence in Heaven, even though it is not "official" in the Church yet.

Listening to her songs, I discovered what God really asks of us artists: humility, giving glory to Him and go unnoticed, singing with our heart and not just our voice. As Sister used to say: "If you are not in a state of grace, then you are worthless no matter how beautifully you can sing."

Here's a little song I composed for her:

All glory be to Our Lord Jesus Christ!
Exalted be Our Lady the Virgin Mary!
Long live Sr. Clare and the Home of the Mother!

Warm greetings from El Salvador,

Javier
