    Given the growing interest in the life and work of Saint Laura Montoya Upegui, this article aims to locate, from the autobiography Historia de las misericordias de Dios en un alma, some strategies or resources used by the saint for the resignification of reality in the face of undeserved misfortune and uncontrolled circumstances. In the research process, the hermeneutic method of Hans-Georg Gadamer (1993) is applied, considering intertextuality as a dialogic relationship, to establish a dialogue with the thought of the philosopher Martha Nussbaum. In society, within the global and the particular, the problems are there to remember their leading role in the human condition. These make visible the need to acquire awareness in the face of perpetual uncertainty. Therefore, one’s belief system, imagination and emotional self-knowledge become an important key to resignify reality, guide decisions and find meaning in a society indifferent to social problems and in which reigns a set of thoughts that are assumed as true and that can reflect the degree of freedom in decision-making or, on the contrary, lead to excessive normative theories that threaten human dignity. The above aspects are clear proof that in Laura Montoya's autobiography there is a thread of retrospective that allows her to recognize emotions, confirm who she is, live her greatest passion and find meaning in facing difficulties. Finally, these results represent only one step in the research process facing the work of a prolific writer.
