Mary of Agreda
A young, ethereal lady, dressed in a habit with a blue cape, is said to have appeared to the Jumano Native Americans numerous times during these years, speaking to them in their native language and instructing them in the Christian faith. Thousands of miles away, in a cloistered convent in Spain, Sr. Maria de Agreda was reporting mystical visits that would occur during prayer, often during Mass after receiving communion, to a tribe of native people in what was called New Spain at the time. Just recently, the Vatican has re-opened the cause for canonization of Sr. Maria de Agreda, who besides her mystical experiences and apparitions was a prolific writer, particularly on the topic of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
Oh Lord that you said to us by means of Sister Maria de Jesus of Agreda: Poor, helpless, sinful, big, small, sick and all the children of Adam, come for your remedy to my liberal and infinite providence, by the intercession of the one that gave human being to the Verb, since only this intercession is powerful to request your remedy and to reach it. Grant the graces to us that today we ask you, in order to be in your holy service entirely. By our Lord Jesus Christ. With the same words, we beg you: You want and order me to imitate you; You stamp and record in me your alive image. You sowed the holy seed of your devotion in my earthly heart; guard it and foment it, Mother, Lady and my Owner, in order that it gives hundredth fruit. Direct me up to the end, send me as Queen, teach me as Teacher and correct me as Mother. Most Holy Trinity, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, the life of Sister Maria de Jesus of Agreda was a singing of praise and love to your Divinity, a constant act of generous immolation to fertilize your Church, and a total dedication to the contemplation of the mystery of Maria Immaculate.
