Testimony of the Hna. Alicia Arregui – Huesca community is I have been asked to say a few words about our mother foundress, who greeted me at the Congregation, and do it with pleasure and great admiration for this woman, without realizing I was helping and forming in my first steps of religious life. However, I was too young to enter the depth of his words and gestures. He was 15 years old and at this age I saw it as a great lady full of authority and aplomb, today, my 99 years, I see in the light of my long life traits of delivery and holiness in words and gestures he had with me and now I will remember. It was a person without attachments, poor of spirit, untethered that could enslave it, I had was for all. One day came to the novitiate when all were gathered and said: "sister Raquel, come here and try this plays to see if it is good", and I put it; as I was well I was with her. Surely she needed it. I thought that I wanted to me more than the others, but was not so, we wanted to and cared about all. When he sensed that something was happening to me I called his cell and gave me a little something that she had and made me sit on a stool that had to rest the legs since didn't it work too well: love me comforted; encouraged all. He tried always to make us happy all, as its ideal. In the exercises that we did for our profession, was also present. Date of the profession was may 1 and April 30 then celebrated the feast of our mother Santa Catalina de Siena, she was account of what was this party for us said: poor girls, leaving exercises and so it was with great joy of all, I wanted to see us happy.! An episode that I want to mention by indicating maturity and truth: a day came to the door of the novitiate, my sister María of the sea, that it was professed, and after giving me the message (I was the novitiate portera) handed me two or three candies that with all love me kept; to go away, I went to give them to the teacher mother, María Pilar Zabalegui (so was our training and my ignorance) and said to me: you don't know that you can not communicate with your sister? To learn the mother foundress said these words: "not know the María pillar that the blood is not water?" and comforted me. Mother Ascensión, strong woman who lived in the truth, full of tenderness and understanding; in his poverty, he felt God's mercy and it was transmitting it to us with your life. I am happy because the mercy still accompanies me and helps me to live confident in this last stretch of life. I'm already going for 100 years… I'm going with the centenary. My greeting to all from HUESCA
