(ANS - Rome) - On 25 August 1969, in Sucúa (Ecuador), the airplane that was carrying Sister Maria Troncatti crashes shortly after take-off on the edge of that forest which for almost half a century was her "home of the heart", the location of her tireless donation among the Shuar people. Sister Maria thus lives her last flight: the one that takes her to Heaven! She was 86 years old at the time, years all spent on a gift of love. She wrote: "Of my religious missionary vocation, I am happier every day!"
