25 August - Bl Mary of Jesus Crucified, O.C.D.

Sr Mariam of Jesus Crucified was Melkite Palestinian who overcame poverty and attempted murder (when she refused to become a Mohammedan) to become a Carmelite nun and the foundress of the Bethlehem and Nazareth Carmels.

There is a short biography from the Melkite point of view here.

A Carmelite vita is posted here.
