Twenty-year old beauty queen Esmeralda Solís Gonzáles has watched her story go viral over the last week on social media over a post on the Miss Mexico Facebook page.  She was crowned last year as a beauty queen in her native town – and now she’s joined the Poor Clare Missionaries of the Blessed Sacrament.

Awakening to Religious Calling

The young postulant met the Poor Clare Missionaries some five years ago at 14, when her concern for a religious vocation “was awakening” through “vocational days, missions and camps.” She currently resides at the convent of the Poor Clare Missionaries of the Blessed Sacrament of Cuernavaca in Morelos State, after leaving her career as a nutritionist.

According to Ms. Gonzáles, “God’s timing is perfect. During this time (of discernment) he allowed me to have some experiences such as being a beauty queen, and other experiences, which forever left their mark and which allowed me to learn a lot for what was to come later.”  Read the full story…. catholicnewsagency.com
