Juan Gregorio Toala, Ecuador:
I discovered that our relationship with Jesus needs to be authentic- that’s what I learned from her.
I met María Augusta in Holy Spirit Parish. She was a normal girl who became a good friend of mine. Something told me I had much to learn from her. And it’s true. I discovered that our relationship with Jesus needs to be authentic- that’s what I learned from her. Our friendship continued to grow, and I got to know her so well that I considered her to be a sister to me. And that’s how it is in reality, because in Christ we grow to love each other as brothers and sisters. She always shared her joys and her worries with me. One of the greatest joys she gave me was when she told me she had entered as a candidate.
Thank you, girls, for having such a strong love for Our Blessed Mother and her son, Jesus. Their leaving this world saddens me, but I am truly happy because of the hope that they are now interceding for us from Heaven.
