Mexican nun beatified

Catholic World News - April 24, 2012

Mother María Inés Teresa of the Most Blessed Sacrament (1904-81), a Mexican nun who founded the Poor Clare Missionary Sisters in 1945 and the Missionaries of Christ for the Universal Church in 1979, was beatified at the Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe on April 21. Cardinal Angelo Amato, prefect of the Congregation for the Causes of Saints, presided at the Mass.

“Joy in our daily Mass, our adoration and meditation, in our daily apostolate, in any type of work we do, in all actions of our daily lives: while we eat and sleep, as well as when we rest,” Blessed María Inés Teresa wrote to the sisters of her community in 1977. “We need to be missionaries by every breath, by every palpitation of our hearts, minute by minute of our lives. Always, daughters, always.”

Present at the beatification Mass was a boy who had fallen into a pool at the age of one, drowned, and been declared dead, and who was subsequently brought back to life through the nun’s intercession--a healing declared miraculous by the Congregation for the Causes of Saints, with the approval of Pope Benedict.
