Even as a child, Juanita (as she is more commonly known), felt drawn to religion, feeling especially attracted to contemplative religious life. Endowed with bookish intelligence, humility and common sense, she was gifted from a very early age with many extraordinary mystical favors which she kept hidden, interior locutions being just one of those graces. And for all that she was graciously gifted with and while she appreciated all of it, it could not quell the void that was in her heart, an emptiness that was only satiated when she thought of being a spouse for Christ. However, she had to overcome herself in many respects, especially the temperamental aspects of her character. In one interior locution, she was told that she would become a Carmelite nun, devoting herself to prayer for priests as well as for a wounded world. Instilled with that message, she fought against the cultural and political tide of the time and never deviated from the divine path that was laid out for her. The only people within her family who were remotely aware of what was happening to her were her confessor, her sister and her mother.
