Eusebia’s short life was full of challenges, which she bore with grace and piety. Born in Spain in 1899, into a poor farming family, she became accustomed to begging to help her family survive in bad times. She worked as a servant to a wealthy family, and later became a nanny at an orphanage. Her call to religious life led her to become a lay assistant to the Daughters of Mary Help of Christians (the Salesian Sisters), where her spiritual gifts were recognised, and she entered the novitiate. In the early 1930s, as the Church was menaced by anti-Catholic forces in Spain, Sister Eusebia offered herself to God for the salvation of her country. In 1932, she contracted an illness which could not be explained by doctors, causing painful contraction of her limbs. She died on February 10, 1935, and was beatified in 2004. We celebrate her feast on 9th February.
