María Augusta Was Truly in Love with Jesus

Erika Tuárez:

erikatuarezMaría Augusta was like a mother to us. Even when she was tired, she was always attentive to each one of us and was considerate in thinking about even the tiniest things we might need.

Erika Tuárez belongs to the Home of the Mother of the Youth in Ecuador. She knew María Augusta and the other candidates very well.

María Augusta was truly in love with Jesus. She often tenderly called Him “My Dear Jesus.”

She helped me a lot with my studies, especially in Biology. She was very patient and if it were necessary, she would repeat her explanation 10 times or draw on the chalkboard. She would try to explain the lessons to us in many different ways and we were always satisfied with her answers. Some of my classmates called her “Doctor.”

God granted me the grace of living in the “Resi” (The Home of the Mother´s Student Residence in Portoviejo) during the last months of this past year. I shared moments of joy with her and the other girls. María Augusta was like a mother to us. Even when she was tired, she was always attentive to each one of us and was considerate in thinking about even the tiniest things we might need. The very few times that she scolded us, she always did so kindly and firmly.

Her protector saint was Saint José María Escrivá de Balaguer, who she loved a lot.

If I had to define her with one word, I would say, “Mother.”
