About Bl. Conchita de Armida

Concepcion Cabrera de Armida more simply known as Conchita was born in Mexico in 1862 to her parents Octaviano and Clara. As a young child she frequently disobeyed her parents but she showed special love for the Holy Eucharist. In 1884 she married Francisco and together they had nine children. When she was only 39 her husband died leaving her to care for their nine children on her own. Living a life as a widow was complicated further by the Mexican Revolution from 1910-1921. Although chaos surrounded her, her writings reflected the peace and tranquility she found in the Blessed Sacrament. 

Although her children hardly ever witnessed her writing, her writings and meditations number over 60,000 written pages. As a mystic her writings spoke beautifully about Jesus and Mary. Her writings were even examined by Pope Pius X in 1913 where they were looked upon with favor. 

Conchita de Armida’s Feast day is celebrated on March 3rd. She is the Patron of Apostleship of the cross, Religious of the Cross of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, and the Missionaries of the Holy Spirit
