Guadalupe Cedeño: She was so much fun. Her attitude and the way she took things made work a lot less burdensome. She never wanted to waste time.
Courtney McHale: She seemed to have the true understanding of humility that we all strive for, not a dismissal of our gifts, but zeal to use our gifts for the purposes of God. Sr. Clare was so much fun to be with, she used her talents for acting and storytelling to capture hearts and lead them towards God. She really had a magnetic quality about her.
Katherin: When we talked, just a few of her words changed things in me without me realizing it. She helped me a lot, which doesn’t happen with many people.
Carmen Laje: She had a very intimate union with the Lord when she received Communion. There were times when she didn’t sing in the choir loft, but close to the altar instead.
Fr. David Keegan: Her love for the Church, for the Eucharist and for Our Lady really opened my heart. She just helped me understand what my life was supposed to be focused on and centered on.
Sr. Julissa Macías: She never missed an opportunity to make us laugh and lift the spirits of those who were down. All this with a deep touch because she was very much against all superficiality.
Sr. Merly Alcívar: She always used to say, “Sister, what can I do to help?” She reflected God’s love. She made you want to be with her all the time.
She taught me to love people as they are, with their faults and virtues. When she saw a rebellious young person, she would say that they were running away from what Jesus was asking of them. That’s why they were trying to fill the emptiness they had in their heart with worldly stuff.
Sr. Mercedes Párraga: Sr. Clare arrived in Playa Prieta in October 2014 and we went to Cajas a few months later. When we got there, we went to the Virgin Mary’s garden. It was a small group of girls and sisters.
Sr. Merly Alcívar: It is something that I say is a gift from the Lord to have been in community with her. She was an example and a gift from the Lord.
