Giving and doing good to others is such a blessing! Blessed be God! He is the One Who does everything.
In the HM Magazine issue number 109, November-December 2002, we found this poem that Sr. Clare, candidate for the Servant Sisters of the Home of the Mother at the time, dedicated to the Blessed Virgin Mary.
I think about our persecuted brothers and sisters a lot. I pray for them, and I really feel that Sr. Guadalupe’s testimony and integrity as well as the bravery of the Nazarenes.
The Virgin Mary is so great! I don’t know how to explain how much good it does me to be with Her and just look at Her.
What makes the Lord happy is when I let Him save me, and my happiness is in the fact that God desires to save me. He does everything, moves everything and permits everything in order to save me.
Sure, there are acts of obedience that are hard for me, but I know that they are always for my good.
Coming back from the first Rosary at Dawn, we had adoration. I read a sentence that helps me every day when I get up. It said, “Ad majora natus sum,” which literally translates to “I was born for greater things.”
Half-joking, as always, but completely serious, as always, Sr. Clare wrote her letter to the Three Kings in 2016.
In prayer I understood that I have to turn everything I do, especially getting up at five o’clock in the morning, into a “sacrifice of praise.”
