Maria Sagrario of St. Aloysious Gonzaga 

 Blessed Maria Sagrario was born at Lillo (Toledo) on January 8, 1881. A pharmacist by trade, she was one of the first women in Spain to be admitted to this qualification. In 1915 she entered the Carmel of St Anne and St Joseph in Madrid.

Through her spirit of prayer and her love for the Eucharist she was a perfect embodiment of the contemplative and ecclesial ideal of the Teresian Carmel. She was Prioress of her community when she was martyred on August 15, 1936. It was a grace she longed for and accepted in perfection of faith and ardent love for Christ.
