The Sisters Trusted Catalina

Catalina fuera de la capilla

Sr. Domenica Salazar, Ecuador:  In the video, you can hear the sisters give keys to Catalina. The sisters trusted her completely, because she was very responsable. 

We’ve discovered a short video recorded by Catalina. It was a birthday gift for a girl who belonged to the Home of the Mother youth group in Playa Prieta, Ecuador. Domenica Salazar, who is currently a novice in the Servant Sisters of the Home of the Mother, shares her memories from that day

It was October 2015. Fr. Rafael Alonso was about to arrive in Ecuador to give spiritual exercises to the sisters. I arrived at Playa Prieta two days before Father did. Some of the Home of the Mother girls, including Valeria and Catalina, weere there helping the sisters. The girls were going to be responsible for the school’s installations while the sisters were away.

The included video is from the day we left for where the spiritual exercises were going to take place. One or two days after we left was the birthday of one of the girls who stayed to help with the school. Catalina, along with the others, wanted to surprise her with the sisters’ wishing her a happy birthday. Like Catalina said, “She’s so important that the sisters wish her a happy birthday while they’re doing spiritual exercises.”

In the video, you can hear the sisters give keys to Catalina. The sisters trusted her completely, because she was very responsable and always willing to do whatever she was asked, and as best as possible. The sisters often said of Catalina and another one of the girls: “These girls are more candidates than the candidates themselves.” They used to say so because they truly were willing to do anything.
