Laura Vicuna

Blessed Laura Vicuna is a blessed person in the Roman Catholic Church. She is the patron of abuse victims.

Mercedes and her daughters moved to the Argentine province of Neuquen. In search of a way to finance her daughters' education, she took a job in the Quilquihue Hostel. The owner of the Hostel, Manuel Mora, propositioned Mercedes, promising to pay for Laura's education in exchange. Laura soon entered the Hijas of Maria Auxiliadora School, where she was taught a love for religion. Following her father's example, and with the care of the nuns, she began to get interested in religion.

Laura made her First Communion on June 2, 1901 where she expressed her vocation of love to God and her wishes to serving the poor and needy people, and also to die sinless. Because of her deep religious interest, she was not well-liked among her classmates. She spent most of her time "rezando" which means(repetitive praying), in the school's chapel.She had one good friend, Mercedes Vera, to whom she expressed her deepest feelings, such as her desire to become a nun.even when very young, Laura was mature enough to understand her mother's problems, which included according her Mercedes' distance from God. This motivated her to "rezar" which means (ritually praying) every day for her mother's salvation and to help her to leave Manuel.
