Venerable Concepcion Cabrera de Armida, Foundress of Works of the Cross

Venerable Concepcion Cabrera de Armida, "Conchita",
wife,mother,and grandmother,
was also called by Our Lord to spiritual motherhood for priests.
If you have not yet been introduced to her spirituality,
this Year of the Priest
would be a good time to get to know her
and reflect on Our Lord's words to her.


Jesus said to Venerable "Conchita",

"Offer yourself as a victim for My priests.
Unite yourself to My sacrifice for gaining them graces."


A source for Venerable "Conchita's books is here.



Mary, Mother of Jesus Christ, Eternal High Priest, Mother of all priests, and our Mother, help us respond generously to the Holy Spirit's request, through the voice of His Church, to offer up to God Eucharistic adoration for priests. Amen.
