The Miracle of Sister María de Jesús

The incorrupted body of Sor María de Jesús

On 15th February each year, the anniversary of her death, the incorrupted body of Sor María de Jesús (Sister Mary of Jesus de León y Delgado) (1643 - 1731), popularly known as La Siervita de Diós (the little servant of God), is put on display. The doors of the Santa Catalina convent in La Laguna are opened (from 5am) as the faithful and curious queue around the block for the chance to view.
