He calls you to be with Him
Here is the testimony of this young girl, today a Sister of Iesu Communio:
"During WYD 2005 in Cologne I had the opportunity to live with many Christians. The experience made me realize that Christianity is not a utopia, but a living reality. I discovered the beauty of being Christian and, from that moment, I decided to participate in everything that the Church could offer me.
And then one day, with a group of young parishioners we were going over our plans to travel to Rome in Holy Week of 2009, and I was told that I’d been chosen to go up to the altar and take the cross from the hands of the young people of Sidney. I had been given the gift of being one of those chosen to take over directly from them.
‘Why me, Lord?’. That was the question in my heart, because it seemed that this was something big, too big for me. As soon as I could, I went to the chapel and prayed to Jesus: ‘
Lord, don’t let me receive your Cross as if it were any old thing’.
Thank you, Mother Church, in whom we are born to a new life".
Iesu Communio is a religious congregation founded by the Spanish Poor Clare nun Sister Verónica in Burgos (Spain). There are currently about 203 nuns in the community, most of them between 18 and 35 years old.
