Biography of Mother Mary Elias of the Blessed Sacrament O.C.D. Mother Mary Elias was a great soul with a great love for God. Born in Mexico in 1879, she was blessed with many natural gifts, as well as a supernatural faith, both firm and strong. The revolution in Mexico, which erupted in 1910, lead to a terrible persecution of the Catholic Church. It was necessary for Mother Mary Elias to rescue all the religious of her convent in Aquascualientes and take them to safety in Cuba, and then on to the United States. Her adventures and truly remarkable divine protection under which she lived offer the reader inspiration - and encouragment to imitate her surpassing trust in God's holy will. His Divine will was her will... His suffering, her suffering. In the United States, she founded four Carmelite monasteries.
