It is no coincidence that I've seen her movie at the very moment I asked God to send me some help, “show me a miracle”—anything that would pull me out of my own despair.
I have no explanation how the movie of Sr. Clare Crockett appeared on my YouTube selection. I could only say that the past few weeks I have been praying so intently for direction and guidance, and I was so in despair this morning that I kept asking for a miracle. I asked God, “Please show me a miracle, please show me a miracle.” I desperately needed to see one today. I know God is real. I know He hears me. I know our Blessed Mother is praying with me and I know she's with me. That is why I pleaded to God, “Please show me something.” I needed something to pull me out of my despair. Although I felt weak, I tried to pull myself up and go through my daily activities.
Midafternoon, as I was going through my usual habit of surfing the net and watching YouTube, this film about Sr. Clare Crockett's life story appeared out of nowhere. There was something in her face, in her smile that pulled my spirit to her... and the next thing I knew I was glued to my seat watching her life story.
It broke my heart to learn she's gone. I felt the pain of those who have known her, but then I also wish I had known her.
There's so many things I want to say, but one thing is for sure: it is no coincidence that I've seen her movie at the very moment I asked God to send me some help, “show me a miracle”—anything that would pull me out of my own despair.
Sr. Clare Crockett must be watching over me.
And I would love to know her more. And I would love to spread her message to everyone, wherever I may be.
