Liberty is a perennial subject of concern in our society, but we don’t hear much about a certain type of liberty: spiritual liberty.
The life of St. Genoveva Torres Morales (1870-1956) of Spain was marked by hardship. By the age of 13, she had lost both parents and several siblings and suffered the amputation of her leg. Then, despite not being allowed to join the Carmelites of Charity due to her physical condition, she went on to found the Congregation of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Holy Angels.
