BUENOS AIRES (ACI Prensa) - Con una Misa celebrada el 5 de diciembre en la casa madre de la congregacion, fundada en 1889 en Buenos Aires (Argentina), la religiosa celebro su cumpleanos junto a sus familiares y amigos a quienes confeso estar "cada vez mas contenta".

Nacio en Sicilia (Italia) en 1918. Fue la segunda de cuatro hermanos, su nombre de bautismo era Santina y su familia se mudo a Argentina cuando ella habia terminado el segundo grado de primaria. Su papa trabajo en una cerveceria y en los ferrocarriles en la ciudad de Cordoba.

En su juventud, Santina tenia deseos de ser religiosa e ingreso a Instituto Hijas de Maria Santisima del Huerto. Sin embargo su salud comenzo a quebrantarse y la superiora estimo que por su condicion esa vida no era para ella.

En esa epoca, por el ano 1933, se abrio en Cordoba el colegio Nuestra Senora de la Merced y el Divino Maestro, perteneciente a la congregacion que lleva el mismo nombre y tiene como mision la educacion y formacion cristiana de la juventud y de la ninez.

"Con mi familia ibamos a Misa alli y me impresiono la piedad tan grande de las hermanas. Rezaban con mucho fervor. Al ver a las hermanas con un fervor tan grande dije: aca tengo que venir yo", comento la hermana Corina a sus familiares y amigos.

Corina ingreso a la congregacion a los 16 anos. "Confio en la gran misericordia de Dios. Gracias a Jesusito querido, que me ha concedido una vida larga", expreso la religiosa, al mismo tiempo que pidio perdon a Dios por los pecados que haya cometido "en mi vida religiosa y civil".

La hermana Corina normalmente salia a la calle, sin embargo una caida accidental que tuvo a los 99 anos le provoco una fractura en la cadera que hoy la tiene en silla de ruedas. Pese a ello, la anciana conversa con alegria y buen humor.

Durante su vida religiosa, la hermana Corina ejercio como docente y fue directora del antiguo colegio de la Inmaculada en el Obispado de Quilmes. Su congregacion esta presente en Argentina, Uruguay y en Espana.
