Mexico's Madre Lupita to Be Beatified
Mexico's Madre Lupita to Be Beatified

GUADALAJARA, Mexico - Guadalupe Garcia was known as being strict, religious and always available to talk.

She kept a room by the front door of the hospital she helped found so that she could make sure the nurses were arriving on time.

On Sunday, Madre Lupita, as she is known in Mexico, will be beatified by Pope John Paul (news - web sites) II. Beatification is the last formal step before sainthood.

Madre Lupita was born in 1878 in Guadalajara, a provincial capital in western Mexico, and died in 1963 in the Santa Margarita Hospital she helped found when she was 23-years-old. Her religious order has 22 foundations in Mexico, Peru, Iceland, Greece and Italy.
