Spanish Model Becomes a Bride of Christ

Olalla Oliveros, a well-known Spanish model and actress, has been speaking about her decision to swap her designer outfits for blue sackcloth and veil after joining the Order of Saint Michael and becoming a nun. As a famous model she took part in glamorous photo shoots and starred in commercials and films and her face was displayed on billboards across Spain. The 36-year-old said she felt an “internal earthquake” after visiting the shrine of Our Lady of Fatima in Portugal and decided to change her lifestyle. She also said she was increasingly unhappy, despite her worldly success, before becoming a nun. She didn’t describe the experience but said she had made the choice after much thought. She said, “The Lord is never wrong. He asked me to follow him, and I could not refuse.”
