Hello to all. I am from Uruguay and I wanted to tell you how Sr. Clare has been very present in my life throughout this year. I’ve watched her testimonies and followed everything very closely since her Passover. I love seeing her happy in her vocation. I also admire her humility, reflecting God’s light and never taking possession of it.
I remember that this year I was going through a time when I was angry. Since I walk a lot, I talk with Sr. Clare. One day I was praying and with very little patience. I went into a bakery and was bothered by the attitude of the girl who served me. I was about to speak harshly to her… but I spoke with such kindness that it surprised me. I thought: “It was Sr. Clare. She taught me about charity.”
Sometimes we feel existential emptinesses… I prayed to her, and at that moment I felt her presence. She was very close to me, and my soul was happy.
Lastly, we all know how towards the end of the year we feel tiredness, lack of fidelity to God… This has its repercussions in our spiritual life, and it is difficult to respond to God, because the world bombards us. Last week, I went to Eucharistic adoration to tell Jesus what was happening to me, how I felt, and how I missed Him. I left slowly and asked Sr. Clare to help me be faithful to God in day-to-day things, because sometimes, although we pray, we lose His presence. I realized that I walked a block in deep recollection. I was conscious of what was happening. I felt as if I were under a mantle that protected me. I know that she interceded for me. I also know that, although it is beautiful, we have to come down from Mount Tabor to continue our path even if we would like to stay there like St. Peter.
I thank God for dear Sr. Clare’s intercession, and for having such a friend in heaven.
Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit. As it was in the beginning, is now, and forever will be. Amen
