Oil Dedicated to Blessed Lindalva Justo de Oliveira (Patron for Homeless Shelter)
Oil Dedicated to Blessed Lindalva Justo de Oliveira (Patron for Homeless Shelter) from A Blessed Call To Love.
Lindalva was born on October 20th 1953 in the town of Açu in North Rio Grande State, Brazil and was the 6th child in a family of 14 children. Her parents, devout Catholics, had a simple and deep faith.
Lindalva received an ordinary Christian education. A generous child, she often helped her mother in the home. Whenever arguments broke out among her childhood companions, she always tried to settle them with gentleness. Attentive to the suffering of others, she would visit people who were lonely or poor in the town; at times she even gave them her own clothes, always in a sensitive and discreet way.
Over time, she understood that she was being called to follow Christ by reaching out to poor persons to witness to the Father’s love for them. After completing her studies as an administrative assistant, she took care of her elderly and ill father.
hen she came back to the house, Sister Lindalva prepared breakfast for the residents as she did each day. As she began her work, she brutally murdered by a sick, 46 years old man who in a violent rage: he could not accept that she had repulsed his advances.
