Sr. Clare singing

Scarleth Beltrán:  I felt as if Sr. Clare was telling me, "I got out of the muck. You can too." And that's how the story of my conversion began with a documentary.

We share this testimony of a young woman from Nicaragua, who wrote to tell us how Sr. Clare helped her to leave a life of sin, far from God.

Three years ago, I arrived at the university when I was 16. You can imagine the life of such a young girl living alone for the first time and experiencing freedom as debauchery. The university I study at has a chapel and a ministry department, places I did not know about for a long time. Then, for the premiere of Sr. Clare's documentary, this department organized a movie night.

Two of my closest friends were scholarship recipients of this department, so they had to participate in the activity. That day we had arranged to go out for dinner, but, since they had to be there, they proposed to the whole group to go see the movie and then go get dinner. We decided to support them and, without a doubt, today I can say that attending that event was one of the best decisions I have ever made in my life. 

At the end of the documentary, I couldn't stop crying. I felt as if Sr. Clare was telling me, "I got out of the muck. You can too." And that's how the story of my conversion began with a documentary. Then I consecrated myself to Our Lady of Mount Carmel and, investigating more about the Home, I realized that this invocation of the Blessed Mother is here also. And so many things have been happening in my life that are always related to the Home of the Mother and Our Lady of Mount Carmel. I also want to point out that, on this path, I have found Saint Thérèse of the Child of Jesus as a great friend and intercessor. Today I realized that she was Sr. Clare's patron saint, so I believe it is all providential.
