Sometimes I imagine one of those old, small churches in the middle of a little village in Spain. Inside the church is the tabernacle, and in the tabernacle, the Eucharist. Hardly anyone goes there to visit Our Lord. Sometimes I sneak away to that little village...
On April 8, 2015, Sister Clare sent a detailed email to Father Rafael Alonso, founder of the Home of the Mother, and Mother Ana Maria Campo, Superior General of the Servant Sisters of the Home of the Mother. This is an excerpt from that email in which Sister Clare shares a beautiful experience that reflects her devotion to the Eucharist and her desire to live in God's presence throughout the day. From a small corner of Ecuador, Sister Clare consoled the loneliness of the Blessed Sacrament, so often abandoned in so many tabernacles throughout the world. Her heart adored the “Supreme Love of all loves” without neglecting her daily tasks at hand.
Sometimes I imagine one of those old, small churches in the middle of a little village in Spain. Inside the church is the tabernacle and in the tabernacle, the Eucharist. Hardly anyone goes there to visit Our Lord. Sometimes, during the day, I sneak away to that little village. I rest my forehead against the tabernacle and keep the Lord company for a while, which does me SO MUCH GOOD. Please pray for me, because like St. Teresa of Avila said, “Deeds, my daughters, love is shown through deeds.” I know that all of these experiences mean nothing if I don’t live the virtues.
I will be sure to send greetings to Our Lady of Cajas for you.
