Josepha Naval Girbes

Bl. Josepha Naval Girbes
(1820-1893)
Virgin
November 6th

 Born December 11th, 1820 at Algemesi in the Archdiocese of Valencia, Spain. As a very young woman she consecrated herself to the Lord by a perpetual vow of chastity. Josepha’s life was simple. She stood out for her ardent love, and she made progress along the way of prayer and evangelical perfection while dedicating herself generously to apostolic works in her parish community. In her own home she opened a school where she taught needlework, prayer, and the evangelical virtues. She formed many young girls and women and shared with them her wisdom and spiritual understanding. She was a member of the Third Order Secular of Our Lady of Mount Carmel and St. Teresa of Jesus and had a special love for the Virgin Mother of God. Her holy death took place on February 24th, 1893. She is buried in her parish church of St. James in her native city.
