† Sr. Alicia LOPEZ-HERMIDA sscc (Spain)

Dear Sisters:

         On January 30 of this year, our sister Alicia López Hermida y Pérez de Agreda left us to return to the Father´s house.

         Alicia was born in Madrid on March 22 1928, within a very Christian family. Her mother, a former student of our school in Fuencarral, very soon brought her two daughters Alicia and Ana María to her own school as she wanted them to have the same education that she had had. In July 1948 she entered the novitiate which she had to suspend for health reasons. In July 1951 she returned to El Escorial and made her temporary profession there on July 16 1952. She made her final profession in Picpus on February 11, 1956.

         She took her degree in History at the Universidad Complutense in Madrid. On finishing her studies, she taught in our schools in Santander, Fuencarral, Paraíso, El Escorial, Torrelavega, Barcelona, Jerez de la Frontera, Romero Girón. From 1972 she started preparing for her doctorate in 1974. Later she taught in a centre for the Handicapped and taught religion in state schools. From 1992 she cared for her sick mother and was attached to the community in Paraiso.

         In 2004 she came to the community in El Escorial. Although her health was already deteriorating, her desire to live, her tenacity to tackle the obstacles that her infirmity posed, was a repeated victory over these last six years.

         Alicia leaves us with a memory of her kindness and good humor, her love of the Congregation, very especially of Our Lady of Peace and the Eucharist. We are confident that Alicia has been welcomed with great love into the heart of God our Father. However, we ask the help of your prayers so that purified of all fault, she can enjoy the fullness of life and peace that does not end.

         The Sisters of the Community of El Escorial are always united in the love and service of the Sacred Hearts.

         In the name of all,

María Paloma Aguirre, ss.cc.
