You Can Count on Me to Be Your Friend

Catalina

Denisse Munoz Alcivar, Ecuador:  I remember that at a certain moment, she gave me her hand and said, “I’m Catalina. You can count on me to be your friend. I would be very happy to help you with whatever you need.”

I met Catalina one Sunday during a Home of the Mother youth group meeting. I remember her as a very happy girl. She acted as if nothing in the world mattered more to her than that moment she was sharing with us.

The last time I saw her was shortly before the earthquake, at the Pro-Life March. We were talking with others girls of the Home of the Mother before beginning the march. I remember that at a certain moment, she gave me her hand and said, “I’m Catalina. You can count on me to be your friend. I would be very happy to help you with whatever you need.” These words touched me deeply, but, because I am so shy, even though I would have liked to thank her for her kindness, I remained silent.

In the short period of time that I knew her, I remember that she was a joyful, authentic, and very humorous young woman. She encouraged all of the girls with a lot of humor. I am so happy to have known Catalina!
