What are You Waiting for?
It was through her mother’s devotion to Mary that Selena came to know of Our Lady. In her encounter with Mary, it birthed a desire to find out more about the Catholic faith.
However, it was only when a Religious Sister urged her to be a catechist that she began her RCIA journey. At that point of time, she was quick to come up with excuses as to why she could not help out, without revealing that she was not a baptised Catholic. When the Sister found out about this, she led Selena to the Priest’s office and simply posed her a question, “What are you waiting for?” In that moment, it was as though all the excuses that she gave were no longer valid.
Selena shares that while her relationship with Mother Mary had suffered through the years, a key moment during the Centennial Celebration of Our Lady of Fatima resurfaced Selena’s love and devotion for Mother Mary. As she encountered Our Mother’s loving gaze, it sparked a desire to draw close to her again. Emphasising on Mary as the perfect role model, Selena encourages us to model after Our Lady in our journey as disciples.
