Guayaquil, Ecuador, Apr 19, 2016 / 16:31 pm
Sister Clare Crockett, an Irish religious sister, was among those who died in the massive Ecuador earthquake on Saturday. Her vocation is the story of a woman who left the party life for an "amazing" life in God.
"I knew that I had to leave everything and follow Him. I knew with great clarity that He was asking me to trust in Him, to put my life in His hands and to have faith," Sister Clare Crockett said in her vocation story, according to EWTN. "It never ceases to amaze me how Our Lord works in the souls, how He can totally transform one's life and capture one's heart."
Sister Clare, from Derry in Northern Ireland, was 33 years-old. She was the voice of Lucy on the long-running EWTN children's television series "Hi Lucy."
Residents of Playa Prieta, some 125 miles from Guayaquil, were able to recover the bodies of six members of the Servant Sisters of the Home of the Mother who died in the earthquake that struck the coast of Ecuador Saturday night.
