(1602-1665)

Maria was a Franciscan nun living in Spain who became the abbess of her monastery and was famous for her spiritual wisdom. She also was transported in prayer some 500 times to present-day New Mexico, where she preached to the Native Americans. When Spanish missionaries first met the Jumanos Indians, they reported her visits and asked to be baptized. The Franciscan superior went to Spain to meet with her; the Spanish Inquisition investigated her twice, but took no action.“My heart never delighted in earthly things, for they did not fill the emptiness in my spirit.”
