As Adorers, we stand on the shoulders of the incredible women who came before us. Their lives and stories light our way along the path that began with our Foundress, St. Maria de Mattias

Over the years, we’ve researched and written biographical profiles of these remarkable women. You’ll find a collection of these profiles below. Please note only the profiles that have been translated to English are available.

History and Letters

Our history is not just the lives of individuals, but the institutions, missions, and legacy they created. In the following books, you’ll find stories of their courage, perseverance, and sacrifice.

I have been in need of some soul-lifting, and rereading [Echoes in Our Hearts] has helped me.
