Conchita, a Mother's Spiritual Diary

Edited by Marie-Michel Philipon, O.P.

Conchita (1862-1937) lived her life in Mexico.  The life of Conchita is characterized by many facets.  She fulfilled all the vocations of a woman: fiancée, wife, mother, widow, grandmother, and even, by a special indulgence of Pius X, without being deprived of her family status, died canonically as a religious in the arms of her children.

She addresses herself to all categories of the People of God, to lay and to married people, to priests and to bishops, to religious and to all consecrated lives.  By the profoundness of her writings Conchita rivals St. Catherine of Siena or St. Teresa of Avila
