Blessed Eusebia Palomino Yenes was born in Cantalpino in the province of Salamanca, in the west of Spain, December 15, 1899. Her family was very poor and during that year Eusebia and her father Augustine Palomino had to go begging in nearby villages, but they did so with joy and singular faith. Eusebia worked, prayed and was loved in her family.
Soon after, she was employed to help a well-to-do family. She did not stop giving attention to her growth as an adolescent, putting her friendship with Jesus in first place.
She was sent to Salamanca to look after the children, then as an assistant in a hostel. She really wanted to become a Sister. One day, while hoeing, she found a medal of Mary Help of Christians. Soon afterwards, a mysterious friend led her to the Sisters’ Oratory. They invited her to stay with them as a helper. Oddly enough, the kitchen became her place for educating, and they would often trot along to the kitchen to get a kind word from this ignorant, young kitchen lass.
She became a Daughter of Mary Help of Christians in 1924. and was sent to Valverde del Camino in the role of cook and domestic help. She began to carry out her ordinary service extraordinarily like Don Bosco had wanted, so much so that the Lord filled her with his gifts.
Like Don Bosco, she had received the gift of prophecy from the Lord. She predicted the Spanish civil war and offered herself as a victim for Spain. Then she began to feel unwell. Her Director, Sr. Carmen Moreno, who became a Martyr and Blessed, looked after her, while she gave some thought to her situation. Sr. Eusebia prophesied her martyrdom.
