Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

My name is Maria. On April 2, 1602, I was born María Fernández Coronel y Arana in Ágreda, Spain. The Jumano Tribe in the New World called me, "The Lady in Blue" because the cloak of my habit is dark blue. I once told my good friend Felipe, the King of Spain, “to God the past and future are both now present”. It is in the spirit of the now that I come to you in this sacred moment to share my story.

In my life I have been greatly blessed by the generosity of God. I have experienced ecstasy in prayer, levitation and bilocation. My heart is full of gratitude for this. Every day in my small little room I practiced deep prayer and meditation where I came to know the beautiful silence of God’s Voice.

God’s radiant light of love surrounds us all. Many times when I was deep in prayer and meditation I would become light as a feather and float above the ground.  In these sacred moments I only knew the glorious, loving light of God.

When I immersed myself into a deep state of prayer, I was filled with complete ecstasy and felt no bodily sensation. God gave me the gift of bilocation. This enabled me to travel across the ocean to the New World where I befriended beautiful Native American people. Although my spirit traveled, my physical form never left from inside the walls of our convent in Spain.

At the beginning I was very confused. I was only fifteen years old. I saw the Native American people and heard them speak. I found myself in a land I had never seen before. It was all so very beautiful. I came to love the Native American people. The Jumanos were my friends.

My soul was full and my senses were alive with new sensations. Sometimes I could feel the coolness of the rain, the warmth of the land on my feet and smell earthly fragrances I had never before known. Everything was manifested to me through the loving light of God. I told the Natives that I brought good news from very far away in the spirit of faith. I spoke to them of the love of Jesus Christ and they listened.

The Blessed Mother came to me and requested that I write her story. “My daughter,” she said, “do not be disturbed in thy heart. I will be thy Mother.”  The music of her voice soothed my soul with wonder and her glorious presence gave me the complete understanding of eternal life. I wrote her story and included messages from the Blessed Queen herself. It is called, "The Mystical City of God."

I encourage you to seek the loving light of God in daily prayer and meditation. Listen to God’s voice in the silence. You will be amazed. God’s great love is unconditional and it is with you always. My story is a testimony that all things are possible with God. 
May God bless you all-ways,
Sor Maria de Jesus

The humane Word said: Mother of mine, receive now the prize from my hand that you deserve. The Holy Spirit said: my most beloved Wife, enter into the eternal joy that corresponds to your faithful love and enjoy without
worries, the winter of the suffering is already over and you come to the eternal possession of our hugs." (MCOG Book VIII.769)
"Because you are God of Love, make me fall in love.
Since you are looking for me, receive me.
Since I look you with my eyes, bind me.

Since you are the fire of love, burn me.
Since you have love, join me.
Since Your chest is open, place me inside."
(Spiritual garden 576)

"Blessed Virgin, mother, pray for me; look that in you I trust; and thanks to your intercession I must be saved. Receive me as a slave and be my guarantee"

I ask, oh Lord, thy will be done. May, oh Lord, be the life of my soul and soul of my life, and work in me Your love. I am yours, Lord, and for you I was born. Lord, I am no longer myself, nor I want to be, nor I want be; I'm yours. My God, make me as the shape of your heart. Remove from me what separates me from you.

Our Lord and our God, glorify on Earth the Venerable Mother Sister Maria de Jesus de Agreda, she helped us to discover the magnificent treasures of grace bestowed on the immaculate Mother of your Son and let us, like her, go into esus by Mary. We ask it on behalf of Jesus Christ, your Son, and by the ntercession of the Virgin Mary, our Mother.
