I found out about Sr. Clare’s story, and the other girls that passed away in the earthquake a while ago. I found out about it through the media. Truly, it’s a blessing to be able to read the beautiful testimonies about those who we hope are already with Jesus. But I want to share with you about Sr. Clare who, since more than a month ago, is guiding me more to holiness.
My dear Sr. Clare,
Even though I didn’t have the chance to know you personally, I reached you through the media. When I saw the video in which you shared your testimony about your vocation, it impacted me. I always end up watching the video, since I feel like we have many things in common.
It’s been more than a month since that dream in which you arrived with a hug saying, “Here I am.” It was as if Heaven came down just to give me that hug. You arrived with a smile, which was what was most characteristic about you, you hugged me, and you left. I remember it almost every day.
You have motivated me to be more holy every day. When I discovered that your model of holiness was our little Saint Therese of the Child Jesus, I entrusted myself to you both. Beforehand, I thought that it was impossible to be holy. Now, since that hug, I know that you are guiding me in order to fulfill the plan that God has for me, so that I may be very, very happy.
Clare, I send you a hug. I love you a lot. Thank you, because you continue bringing souls to Jesus. And thank you because every day you are helping me to say “YES” to the call.
