Blessed Maria del Carmen of the Child Jesus Life History

Blessed Maria del Carmen of the Child Jesus was born to a religious family. In 1857, she married Joaquin Munoz del Cano, a violent and unfaithful man to whom she responded by praying for him to change until he turned his life around.

Maria del Carmen was widowed in 1881 and in 1882, she turned her home into a combination school and clinic caring for and educating children who were too poor to afford other resources.

On May 8 1884, she and other like-minded ladies started living in a common convent of Our Lady of Victory of Antequera, Spain.

Maria del Carmen laid the foundation of the Hermanas Franciscanas de Los Sagrados Corazones which she helped found and they received approval from Bishop Miguel Salazar Gomez on July 10 1884 Maria taking the name Carmen of the Child Jesus.
