(L) La Siervita (The Little Servant) (R) Body of Mary of Jesus de León y Delgado

Mary of Jesus de León y Delgado was a Spanish Catholic mystic also known as “the little servant.” She lived from 1643 to 1731 and is said to have thousands of miracles attributed to her. Still, she has yet to be canonized by the church. De León’s incorrupt body is still preserved in the Monastery of St. Catherine. Every year on the anniversary of her death (February 15), her body is placed on display for visitors to see. No known research or investigation has been done on her body.
