In a series of essays she wrote, entitled An Encouraging Word, Sister Teresita reflected on God’s call. “I became aware of His special call to me to serve him as a consecrated religious when I was in my teens. From that moment on, God took over my life. He has guided me, sustained me, loved me, forgiven me, blessed me, carried me, tested me lovingly, healed me, filled me with joy and peace. He has given me the gift of good friends, sent people to minister to me. He has believed in me, hoped in me, loved me. All I need to do is open my heart and life to him and respond to His generosity.”
