The story of Sor Maria de Jesus, also known as the Lady in Blue, is a truly inspiring tale of faith, courage, and dedication. Despite living her entire life in a small cloistered monastery in Agreda, Spain, she became a spiritual leader and teacher to the Jumano Indians in the New World.

Through her deep prayers and trances, Sor Maria was able to communicate with the Jumano people, teaching them the Catholic faith and inspiring them to seek baptism. Her teachings were so powerful that even after her death, the Jumano people continued to honor her and tell her story.

Sor Maria's story is also a testament to the power of faith and the importance of missionary work. Through her spiritual journeys, she was able to bring thousands of people to the Catholic faith, paving the way for future missionary efforts in Texas and beyond.

Today, the Lady in Blue is remembered and celebrated through the efforts of the Historic Beginnings of San Angelo, who have worked tirelessly to preserve her story and honor her legacy. The sculptures and documentary created by HBSA serve as a reminder of Sor Maria's powerful impact and the enduring power of faith.

Sor Maria de Jesus may have lived a humble and cloistered life, but her spirit and teachings continue to inspire and guide people to this day. Her story is a reminder that even the smallest acts of faith and dedication can have a profound impact on the world around us.
