Blessed Laura Vicuna was the first born to a noble, Chilean, military family. Her father died young, leaving the family alone and without income, so her mother took work at a large estate and unfortunately became the owner’s mistress. Yet, Laura and her sister were able to attend the Salesians Sister’s school. Here she fell in love with Jesus and secretly promised her life to God for her mother’s salvation. In 1904, with her mother at her side, she revealed “Mamma, I’m dying but I’m happy to offer my life for you. I asked our Lord for this.” Her mother instantly understood, repented of her sins and begged forgiveness.
