Headline: AMERICA/ECUADOR – Testimony of a missionary, “True happiness is found only in God”
Quito – “Her overflowing joy has led many souls, especially young people, to discover that true happiness is found only in God. The coherence of her life and her total dedication to the various apostolates carried out in Spain, the United States and Ecuador succeeded in effectively transmitting the message that only God can satisfy the heart of man when one gives himself completely to Him, without denying him anything”. These are the fundamental features of the testimony of Sr. Clare Crockett, of the Siervas del Hogar de la Madre , a young Irish missionary, who had been in Ecuador for 15 years, when a violent earthquake hit the coast of the country on the night of April 16, 2016. The earthquake caused hundreds of deaths and thousands of injured. Among the victims there was Sister Clare and five postulants from her community of Playa Prieta, where the nuns ran a school that was completely destroyed .
