First Profession of Sr. Maria Clara, SOLT

Img 2134 2
Benque Viejo, Belize

My parents had a total of 19 children. Sadly, 4 were miscarried and 5 of my siblings passed away when they were young. At a young age I had a desire to be baptized, and when I was nine years old my dad allowed me to be baptized. After that we moved and didn’t go to Mass for many years. But when I was 18, I made my First Communion and Confirmation.

I first felt the call from God at a young age. When I was 12 years old, I wanted to enter the Sisters of St. Vincent de Paul but my dad didn’t approve. My constant prayer was that if God was calling me to religious life, He would put sisters in my path. Sometime after that, I met Sr. Asunción and Sr. Marta, SOLT. From then on, my experience with the Lord has deepened every day and I have discovered a greater fullness in all my being. Since my encounter with God, I have discovered a deep happiness.

The day I professed my vows, I felt so much joy that I don’t even know how to explain it with words. During the ceremony, when they called my name, I felt like it was God Himself who had called me. Thanks to this community, in which I have found the face of Christ, and I have felt welcomed and loved. Thanks be to God!

SR. MARIA CLARA, SOLT

Sr. Maria Clara is from Las Flores del Chiquibul, a remote village about 4 hours from the SOLT mission in Melchor de Mencos, Guatemala.
