A new Venerable Discalced Carmelite nun

On the 7th of November 2018, our Holy Father Pope Francis received in audience His Excellency Cardinal Angelo Becciu, Prefect of the Congregation of the Causes of the Saints. During the audience, the Holy Father authorized the Congregation to promulgate the Decree on the heroic virtues of the Servant of God, María Antonia de Jesús (born: María Antonia Pereira y Andrade), a professed nun of the Order of Discalced Carmelites; born in El Penedo (Spain) on the 5th of October 1700 and died in the Carmel she founded in Santiago de Compostela (Spain) on the 10th of March 1760. GLORY BE TO GOD!
