The communist regime forced her to leave and return home to her parents seven years after entering the convent.
Following her parents’ death, she lived alone and learned “to keep the faith alive in the hearts of the faithful, although secretly.”
“Thanks to the consent of the priests, I kept the Blessed Sacrament in a cabinet at my home and brought it to the sick and dying,” she said.
As communist rule came to an end in Albania, Kaleta was able to make her final vows in 1991.
“When I think of it, I wonder how we were able to endure such terrible sufferings, but I know the Lord gave us strength, patience and hope,” she said
“The Lord gave strength to those He called, in fact he has repaid me from all my sufferings here on earth,” she added, saying that she “had the fortune of becoming a religious.”
Kaleta died on Jan. 2 in her convent in Shkodër, northern Albania.
