† Martina FERNÁNDEZ MARTÍNEZ sscc (Spain)

   Yesterday, in the afternoon of the 13 November 2008, our sister Martina (Áurea Fernandez Martínez) left us to enter the house of the Father.
   Martina came from a profoundly Christian family into which she was born on the 25th August 1925 in Arges, Burgos; she was baptized there two days later on 27 August 1925. In 1942 she entered the novitiate in El Escorial where she made her temporary vows on the 16 January 1944 and her final profession in September 1949.
   She spent her religious life in our communities in Torrelavega, Santander, Madrid (Regina Pacis), Barcelona, Fuencarrall, Madrid (Paraíso) generously dedicated to the internal needs of the community and in particular to door keeper.
   In 1997, se arrived in El Escorial where she spent her last years. She has left us with a good memory of someone who was simple, desiring to serve and help right to the end. She left us above all, the witness of a prayerful soul, of adoration, to which she dedicated long hours, especially in her last years.
   We are totally confident that God our Father has welcomed her into his Heart. However, we ask the help of your prayers so that purified from all stain, Martina can enjoy the fullness of life, of light and peace which is He himself and which will have not end.
   In the name of this community I embrace you and remain always united in the SS.CC.
