BLESSED MARIA TRONCATTI (1883-1969)

Written by

Sr Troncatti in her clinicMaria Troncatti was born in Cortegno Golgi (Brescia) on February 16, 1883. She grew up happy and hardworking in her numerous family, dividing her time between the farm and caring for her little brothers and sisters, in the warm and loving atmosphere created by her exemplary parents. She regularly attended catechism in her parish, where she developed a deep Christian spirit and opened her heart to the values of a religious vocation.

First profession at Nizza Monferrato

In obedience to her parish priest, however, she waited till she reached adulthood before asking to be admitted to the Institute of the Salesian Sisters. She made her first profession in 1908 at Nizza Monferrato.

During the First World War (1915-18) Sr. Maria took a course in health care in Varazze and worked as a Red Cross nurse in the military hospital. This experience was to prove very valuable in the course of her long missionary life in the Amazon forests of Ecuador.

Missionary in Ecuador

She left for Ecuador in 1922 and was sent to work among the Shuar people where, together with two other Sisters, she began the difficult work of evangelisation. They faced dangers of every kind, including those caused by the beasts of the forest and by fast flowing rivers that had to be waded through or crossed on fragile "bridges" made from creepers or on the shoulders of the Indians.

Nurse, surgeon, dentist...

Macas, Sevillia Don Bosco, Sucúa are some of the "miracles" of Sr. Maria Troncatti's work that still flourish. She was nurse, surgeon, orthopaedist, dentist, anaesthetist... But, above all, she was catechist and evangeliser, rich in the wonderful resources of her faith, patience and fraternal love.

Promotion of Shuar women

Her work for the promotion of the Shuar woman bore fruit in hundreds of new Christian families formed, for the first time, on a free personal choice on the part of the young couple.

Sr. Maria died in a tragic air crash at Sucúa on August 25, 1969. Her remains lie at Macas, in the Province of Morona (Ecuador).

Proclaimed Blessed on the 24 November 2012

BLESSED MARIA ROMERO MENESES (1902-1977)

Written by

ROMEROMaria Romero Meneses was born in Granada, Nicaragua, on the 13th January 1902 to a well-to-do family. Her father, a minister in the Government of the Republic, was generous with those who had nothing. Mary learned from her earliest years what it meant to offer practical charity even when it was difficult. The family had great dreams for her: she studied music, pianoforte and violin.

Experience with the Salesian Sisters

When she was twelve she went to the Daughters of Mary Help of Christians' schools, where she was happy and always available. It seemed that Don Bosco's charism had been tailor-made for her. In the novitiate she taught music and worked at the Festive Oratory, where she came into contact for the first time with the girls' poor circumstances.

Costa Rica

After her perpetual vows, she was sent to Saint José in Costa Rica, which would become her second homeland. She was asked to teach in a school for rich girls. But she was on the lookout especially for "poor and abandoned", like Don Bosco.

Festive oratories for poor children

Choosing from amongst her best students she set up the Disciples for the Oratories. They called them "las misioneritas". They went into poor huts, helped clean, brought people food and clothing collected by Sr Maria and taught catechetics. She then began to found festive oratories for poor children: There were thirty six of them!

Signs of assistance from Mary Our Help

Mary Help of Christians, whom she called her Queen, ensured that many offerings came her way to support her works. Thanks to voluntary work by medical specialists she succeeded in setting up a clinic with various specialisations, to ensure medical and pharmaceutical help; there were also rooms for catechetics and teaching literacy and a chapel to pray in.

Incredible achievements

She built 'real' homes for the homeless, the so-called ciudadelas de María Auxiliadora, a work that still goes on through the help of The Asayne Lay Association (Asociación Ayuda a los Necesitados). To spread Salesian devotion to Mary Help of Christians she had a Church built in the centre of Saint José. In reality she carried out great things through faith and with the help of good people won over to her cause, after they had experienced the effects of devotion to Mary.

Contemplative in action

Like Don Bosco and Mother Mazzarello she was a contemplative in action. Her union with God made sure she was sought out for spiritual direction. Many of her "Escritos Espirituales" have been printed. She died of heart failure on the 7th July 1977.

Civic and Church honours

The government of Costa Rica declared her an honorary citizen of the nation. Her body is in Saint José de Costa Rica, at the great work she founded as a "Casa de la Virgen" and "Obra social".

John Paul beatified her on the 14th April, 2002
