One hundred five year old Sister Teresita Barajuen, cloistered for 86 years, has died.
She entered the Cistercian monastery when she was 19, the abbess said.Heaven had been waiting a long time.
Barajuen acknowledged in interviews that like many young women at the time, she never intended being a nun but entered the monastery because of family pressure.
In 2011, Barajuen left the monastery for the first time in 40 years to meet retired Benedict XVI during a papal visit to Madrid. She had entered the monastery on the same day he was born.
Eternal rest, grant unto her O Lord and let perpetual light shine upon her.
May she rest in peace. Amen.
