Profile

Discalced Carmelite nun at the monastery of Guadalajara, Spain. Martyred in the Spanish Civil War with Blessed Maria Angeles of Saint Joseph and Blessed Maria Pilar of Saint Francis Borgia. The mob that murdered her offered her freedom if she would say “Viva el Comunismo!” (“Long live Communism”); she answered “Viva Christo Rey!” (Long live Christ the King!).
