Laura Mero Arteaga, Ecuador: She just looked at me and smiled, but that gaze had a big impact on me, because it was so filled with affection and expressed such a great love. It was as if she had known me for years. It was a motherly gaze.
Chelita Velasquez, Ecuador: Her vocation helped me to see how I truly was and to realize that I wasn’t doing things correctly. Thanks to her I realized that I was denying the Lord many things. He wanted me to be free of my attachments.
Sr. Kelly Maria Pezo, USA: The graces she received that Holy Week were fundamental. They were the last push towards the fulfillment of God’s will in her.
Gemita Dayana Vergara Espinoza, Ecuador:
She would always say this phrase: “God chose me and I give Him thanks for it because I am nothing. Without Him I’m just nothing. He knows why He permits these things.”
