Maria Virginia Spiritual Writer

Jesus has been traveling with me throughout my study of the saints since 2012, but I didn’t recognize Him right there next to me until May 10, 2017. This spiritual awakening helped me journey through my recognition, escape, and healing from psychological abuse.

Check out my archives and/or begin journeying along with me now as I ponder saints and their recipes for faithful living as well as spiritual awakenings, angels, nature, recovery, books, and foods. Blessed Mother Mary is my namesake and Muse, and St. Francis of Assisi is my birthday patron and inspiration. Without my connection to them, this blog wouldn’t exist. They give me the courage to tackle a new topic: Directly Jesus. Stay tuned by subscribing to email notifications on the main page.

I’m writing a book about the Gospel Saints and their connections to Jesus, each other, and us. This is the cover:
