Church in Jerusalem Welcomes New Consecrated Member

At the end of the Mass of consecration on Nov. 1, 2023, María Ruiz Rodríguez shows the ring symbolizing her membership in the Ordo Virginum. That’s the only outward sign of her consecration.

Ruiz, now 42, is originally from Spain and arrived in Jerusalem in 2018 for a period of discernment.
