Mother Carmen Jesús was born in Purullena (Granada, Spain) in 1966. She was a perpetually professed member of the Instituto Discípulas de Jesús and transferred to La Palma in 2016 and made her solemn profession in 2020. The postulation was confirmed by the Abbot General and the dispensation for her short time of profession was granted by the Holy See.
