Clare Crockett born in a Catholic family. She received the Sacraments of Christian Initiation, but, during her teenage years. She no longer frequented the Church.
In Holy Week of the year 2000, at 17 years of age, she arrived at a Home of the Mother Retreat. She seemed both joyful and superficial. She was looking for sun and parties in Spain.
That not what she expecting. From her childhood, she always dreamt of becoming a movie star. She working her way towards that dream. At the age of 15, she already been contracted to host a show for young people on Channel 4. One of the biggest in the United Kingdom and at the age of 17. The American channel Nickelodeon had shown interest in her.
She spent the first days of the Holy Week Encounter sun bathing and smoking. On Good Friday, someone said to her, “Clare, today you have to go into the chapel. It’s Good Friday.” She went into the chapel, but she stayed in the last pew. During the Good Friday liturgy, the faithful adore and kiss the Crucifix.
Clare joined them. It a simple gesture, but it a changing point in her life. When the service over, a sister found her crying as she repeated, “He died for me. He loves me! Why hasn’t anyone ever told me this before?” Clare had understood how much the Lord loved her and how much He had done for her. She understood that “Love repaid by love alone,” and that the love the Lord asked of her meant a complete donation.
