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
