mariacrocifissacurcio 350July 4 is the Feast of Blessed Maria Crocifissa Curcio foundress of the Carmelite Missionary Sisters of Saint Therese of the Child Jesus. The mission of the congregation was to ‘bring souls to God’ by feeding the poor, educating children and supporting families in Christian living.

Following the example of St Therese of the Child Jesus she found happiness in the “regular and faithful fulfilment of one’s duties”, doing “with love and dedication even the smallest deeds”. Humility and simplicity, joy and tenderness marked her relationship with everyone.

Madre Maria Crocifissa died on July 4 1957 in Porto Santa Rufina, after a life spent in living the Carmelite life of contemplative prayer, community and prophetic action among the poor and disadvantaged.
