St. Mary of Jesus Crucified, OCD, Virgin

Optional Memorial - August 25

Mariam Baouardy was born at Abellin in Galilee on January 5, 1846 to very poor parents who were good living and devoted Greek-rite Catholics. She was left an orphan after the death of her parents at only three years of age. On June 14, 1867, she entered the Carmel in Pau.

On August 21, 1870, while still a novice, she left for India to join a new Carmel to be founded at Mangalore. On 21st November 1871, she made her religious profession there. One year later, she was recalled to Pau, from where she left as part of a new foundation, the first Carmel in Palestine.

She died on 26th August 1878 at Bethlehem from a cancer which she had contracted after a fracture caused by a fall.
