Photos of St. Maravillas of Jesus

St. Maravillas of Jesus is my patron and namesake in Carmel (and now!) as I will have her name when I enter Carmel:  Sr. Mary Maravillas of Jesus and the Holy Face.


St. Maravillas is on the left side holding the book – which I THINK is her Divine Office book that she carried with her very often.

Mother Maravillas and Sister Dolores de Jesús seeing the land for the founding of Duruelo – Duruelo is the land and monastery that St. John of the Cross lived in for years and St. Maravillas wanted to reclaim this land/monastery as well as others and bring them back into Carmel as monasteries as nuns or friars.  This one in Duruelo became a monastery of nuns.
