Before Sr. Clare joined her religious congregation, she was an actress in Ireland. Once she entered as a Sister during her time in the community of Valencia, she helped with the hospital ministry in the Hospital of Mislata. She also worked in parish ministry and with the families of Torrent where the community had their house in the outskirts of Valencia. (Taken from the article in AVAN)
In the pictures and videos from this event she is happy, constantly smiling, moving about easily without complexes, but above all, happy.
To think that a year on people are still writing about her is unbelievable.
Religión en Libertad [Religion in Freedom] attentively followed the tragedy taken place in Ecuador from the start. They particularly covered the sufferings of the Servant Sisters of the Home of the Mother at the loss of Sr. Clare and the five young girls who died with her.
The biggest discovery of this interior and exterior trip was that she drew close to God.
Sr. Beatriz Liano, SHM: Our Lord was able to make Sr. Clare a “famous nun,” and her story reached the news worldwide because Sr. Clare walked decidedly on the path of humility and placed all of her natural talents at the service of God’s glory and well-being of souls.
The article published by “La Gaceta” accentuates that Sr. Clare “left her acting career to give her life to God.”
Donna Deeney: Heroic Sister Clare inspired Camino Way pilgrimage by Downpatrick teacher Carol Toner.
Jose Luis Restan: The faith is what impresses me. I have experienced it once again upon reading the story of a young religious sister, Sister Clare Crockett, deceased during the earthquake that devastated the North coast of Ecuador.
I Am Worship Band: "Thank you for your shining example of faith and love. We are richer for knowing you."
