Above St. Maravillas on the left with a daugher, Sr. Dolores at her foundation of Duruelo.  St. Maravillas is holding a book which is her Divine Office book that she carried with her very often.

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.

I have a Picasa photo album with many pictures of St. Maravillas, young and old at: https://picasaweb.google.com/jmjtcarmelite/StMaravillasOfJesus

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.
