SG Maria Amada Chapel

Chapel of the Servant of God Maria Amada

It is located to the side of the main entrance of the house. It is dedicated to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and to the Blessed Virgin of Guadalupe, whose images inspire welcome, peace and confidence. It is a space of meditation and recollection - in the midst of the noise of this

busy city - for anyone who wishes to take advantage of it. Just touch the door, identify yourself and express your intention to get inside to pray.

In this small oratory, next to a black granite cross, in a wooden urn of Machiche, the remains of the Servant of God, María Amada del Niño Jesús, are guarded. Here they were moved and placed, after her body was exhumed in February 2011, because until then they were buried in the Jardin Pantheon, on the south of Mexico City. This process was carried out in compliance with the ecclesiastical norms for the canonization processes, so that the remains of the Servant of God are more accessible to those who wish to visit it and entrust themselves to their intercession in their needs.

This oratory is the work of Architect Eduardo Javier Gerardo Cortés Peñafiel, who professionally designed the adaptation of the space that occupied the reception room of the Mother House.

Prayer for the Canonization

Heavenly Father, you who delights in decorating your saints and chosen ones with the virtues of your Divine Son, and who wanted to scorch your daughter Maria Amada with the Fire of Love of His Hearth, and the ardent zeal to extend His Kingdom which was manifested trough her love for the poor and the homeless; we ask for the grace to imitate her example for your greater glory and the good of the Church, that she will be raised to the honor of the altars. We ask this for Saint Mary of Guadalupe, and the merits of Christ Our Lord. Amen.

Prayer for her Intercession

Merciful Father, you have chosen your daughter Maria Amada, whom burned in the love of Jesus Christ, your Son, and full of zeal for the extension of the Kingdom of Love from his Heart, who will throughout her life care for those who suffer, especially for the poor and homeless. We ask You through her intercession, grant us the grace that we ask in faith ... (make your request). We thank you for all the gifts that you have granted us and those which you want to give us through him. Listen compassionately to our prayers and let us know your will, for Our Lady of Guadalupe and the merits of Christ our Lord. Amen. Sacred Heart of Jesus, I trust in You!
