Amparo Portilla Crespo, a Spanish woman of our era, mother of eleven children, could be the first married woman in eight centuries to be canonized in the diocese of Madrid. Moving testimonies by friends and family bear witness to her heroic virtues, with some very human anecdotes. Many hours of home video and 8 mm. footage were the sources used for this exciting biography. Parents of families today can find in the life of Amparo, who died in 1996, useful examples for the Christian education of children and conjugal relations.
