This year, Sr. Clare Crockett's anniversary falls on Holy Saturday. Six years have already passed since the death of our dear Sister. On this sixth anniversary of Sr. Clare’s death, the Home of the Mother and the EUK Mamie Foundation have prepared material that can help us, both children and adults, get to know her better: a new biography, a book of articles written by Sr. Clare addressed to children, and a new video that summarizes her conversion in 15 minutes.
The magazine of the Theological Institute of St. Thomas Aquinas, Lumen Veritatis, published an article dedicated to the biography of Sr. Clare, written by Fr. Carlos Werner, EP, in its 51st issue. We share the article below.
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.
Scarleth Beltrán: I felt as if Sr. Clare was telling me, "I got out of the muck. You can too." And that's how the story of my conversion began with a documentary.
On February 1, 2022, an article about the book on Sr. Clare Crockett was published in the Italian edition of the Vatican City newspaper, L'Osservatore Romano. It takes up half a page and features a photograph of the mural dedicated to Sr. Clare in the Brandywell neighborhood in Derry, her hometown.
"Most of the young people we talked to were baptized, but when we asked them, “So do you live as a Christian?” the general answer was that they did not. They didn't go to Mass on Sundays and very rarely went to confession or prayed."
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.
On January 29, 2022, a new mural dedicated to Sr. Clare was unveiled in her hometown of Derry, Northern Ireland.
