Sr. Clare and Children

Carlos:  “She filled our void. She is an angel protectress for my family.”
“We met the Home because of her. We met a new and joyful family, made up of persons who touch our heart.”


Katherine Cobeña:  I could say anything to her and I knew she would never judge me.

Nelly and a friend

Nelly Mendoza:  One of her virtues was her love of surrendering herself to what the Lord asked of her. Because in everything she did, you could see that she did it with love and joy.

Nelly and Her Husband

Nelly Mendoza:  I received the big grace to share several moments working with her. At the time, when she arrived, the Sisters’ house was being built—they were painting—and some of us went to help the Sisters with the work.

Map of Ireland

Sr. Beatriz Liaño:  Sr. Clare had not been a part of the community for very long when this anecdote took place. I think she was still a candidate, although perhaps she was already a novice. All I know is that I had a hard time understanding the mystery of her nationality.

Isabel and Sr. Clare

Isabel Ibáñez:  She was a strong woman. Her words had strength. She had wisdom to shut your mouth and look down on you, and yet she didn't do that. I was a imperturbable teenager with a similar ability to speak out and with a clarity of ideas, and I saw that she had the same ability but used it differently.

Sr. Sasha

Sr. Sasha Smith, USA:  I remember a conversation I had with her about the fact that God is good. She was the first person who convinced me of that, or affirmed it to me. For a long time, I had a concept of God that was wrong, and talking with her, she explained to me how God cannot be anything but love.

Gema and Family

Gema Loor:  She always, always encouraged us to look to Our Lady, even to write letters to her when we were having a hard time. I also remember her saying that we should never take off our wedding rings, and we never do.

Selena and Sr. Clare

Selena Navarrete:  She truly lived to give glory to God, because you can tell when someone does something to be admired. She was not like that. She brought God to everyone. Her way of being conveyed joy, hope, dedication and much more.

Fr. Fred and Sr. Clare

Fr. Fred Parke:  The time that I remember the most about the Sisters and Sister Clare especially was when I was asked to give a talk about the Catholic tradition at the community college.  I said to the professor, “Could I bring four sisters along?” and they said, “Wow, that’d be wonderful!” So we got in the van and off we went.
