Profile

Born to a poor peasant family, Amparo was educated at a convent of Daughters of Mary, Help of Christians sisters near her home. She felt a call to religious life, but it took a lot of convincing to get her family to agree. She made her initial profession in the Daughters of Mary, Help of Christians in 1923, and her final profession in 1929. In 1936 she was assigned to the Santa Dorotea convent in Barcelona, Spain. Martyred in the Spanish Civil War.
