Sr. Clare Spurs Me On Toward Heaven

borja

Borja, Spain: If today my desire is to become a holy priest tomorrow, I owe it in part to Sr. Clare's intercession.


Borja, a seminarian from Valencia, Spain, writes to inform us about important graces he is receiving, thanks to Sr. Clare's surrender. Thanks be to God!

I am receiving many graces through Sr. Clare. It's amazing because Our Lord grants me tears of consolation and the desire to be holy when I watch videos of Sr. Clare as well as when I think about her and commend myself to her. When I first saw the video, "In Memory of Sr. Clare," I began to cry for joy and consolation. Through that video, experienced an encounter with Our Lord. This happened a year ago, shortly after her death in the earthquake.

Time passed in which I did not think about her or watch any other video, but recently I became interested in her story. It touches my soul! The Lord speaks to me in the depths of my heart through her. Her joy makes me want to be holy. Seeing how she took life seriously and with determination ("All or nothing," as she says), makes me want to abandon my lukewarmness.

I have to thank God amply for Sr. Clare. Just yesterday, after having watched her videos and receiving abundant graces, I spent the day much closer to Our Lord: joyfully, in spite of the fatigue, with a lot of consolation, an impulse to give of myself to others, which did not come from me, definitely a grace from Sr. Clare! If today my desire is to become a holy priest tomorrow, I owe it in part to Sr. Clare's intercession. I have been thinking about and consulting this with my spiritual director: I cannot nor should not hush this huge grace that I have received and continue to receive from Sr. Clare. Sr. Clare spurs me on toward Heaven. She strengthens my hope.

Thanks a million, Sister Clare, for your complete surrender to God!
