She was the Spiritual Adviser to the King and evangelist of America

2015-12-16

When St. Junípero Serra de Mallorca went to evangelize in the United States, he took only two books with him. The Bible and the "Mystical City of God,” a biography of Our Lady, written by Mother Ágreda

This 17th century Spanish nun is considered a great mystic.

FR. ANTONIO MARÍA ARTOLA ARBIZA

"She gave herself to the Lord and she is one of the three great women of Spain: St. Teresa, Isabella, and Mother Ágreda.”

Born in the small town of Soria, her house was converted into a convent. Her siblings, just like her, were also religious. She was the spiritual adviser to King Philip IV of Spain. In a way she was also an evangelist of America. She achieved all this without ever leaving her convent in Spain since, according to tradition, she had the gift of bi-location.

"She is more than a mother, she is a saint to us. She is very beautiful to us. She means so much to us, to our people and to our homeland”.

There are over 500 documented visits of her in the United States through the gift of bi-location. When the first missionaries contacted indigenous people, they discovered they already knew the Gospel. A woman they knew as "Lady Blue” they said, had taught it to them.

Author "María of Ágreda: Mystical Lady in Blue”
"She is important- first for her spiritual example, second for her outstanding portrait of Mary and third, in my opinion, for her long standing effect in the spirituality of all America because her work inspired all of the missionaries who attended missionary colleges.”

In Rome, a conference has reflected on the spiritual heritage of this religious sister who has been recognized as a venerable. But it's very possible that the cause of her beatification will accelerate and move along in the coming months.
