California Sainthood Cause Moves Forward

Press Release

January 22, 2023, Cathedral of San Carlos, Monterey, California:  Today Bishop Daniel Garcia presided over the closing session for the Cause of Beatification and Canonization of Servant of God Cora Louise Evans. The ceremony was preceded by the 5:30 Mass attended by over 250 parishioners. Dr. Emanuele Spedicato, postulator of the Rome phase of the cause stated, “Following the celebration of the last session, the Acts of the Inquiry will be delivered to the Vatican’s Dicsastery for the Causes of Saints, and the Roman phase will begin.

NOVEMBER 16, 2022, BALTIMORE – At their fall General Assembly, the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) today approved by voice vote the canonical consultation of canonization for Servant of God Cora Evans. Sought by Bishop Daniel Garcia of Monterey, California, the voice vote is in keeping with the Episcopal consultation process as a step in the Catholic Church’s process towards declaring a person a saint. 

Cora Evans (1904-1957) was a wife and mother, a writer, and mystic. She was a convert from Mormonism to the Catholic faith. The mission entrusted to Cora Evans by our Lord is the promulgation of the Mystical Humanity of Christ – the divine indwelling – throughout the world. This is Eucharistic spirituality, encouraging the faithful to live with a heightened awareness of the living presence of Christ in the ordinary circumstances of the daily lives. Cora’s mission fully supports the mission of USCCB especially as it relates to Eucharistic renewal in parishes and for the universal Church.

Presentation by Most Rev. Daniel Garcia, 
Bishop of Monterey, California
November 16, 2022 Meeting of the USCCB
Baltimore, Maryland

Thank you, Archbishop Gomez. My brothers, it is my joy to present to you the Servant of God, Cora Louise Evans, a wife, mother, and mystic, who was born to Mormon parents in 1904 in Ogden, Utah. Cora’s family had a special history with Mormonism from its inception, as her ancestors settled in Utah alongside Brigham Young.  At the age of three, Cora had her first mystical experience with the Blessed Virgin Mary, whose message Cora would not understand until many years later.  Cora suffered from multiple ailments as a child, limiting her to merely an eighth-grade education.

When she was 19 years old, Cora was married in the Mormon Temple in Salt Lake City, but the ceremony itself triggered a sudden process of alienation from her Mormon beliefs. In 1934, she heard a radio broadcast of “The Catholic Hour,” featuring Msgr. Duane Hunt, who was shortly to become the Bishop of Salt Lake City, teaching about the Blessed Virgin Mary and the Catholic faith. Cora realized immediately that this was the same woman who had appeared to her as a child. Following her illness, Cora began taking instructions in the Catholic faith and was baptized and received her first Holy Communion in 1935.

Cora paid a high cost for her conversion.  Her parents and extended family shunned her, and the local community deprived her husband of work. Thus, the Evans family decided to move to California, ready to start a new life. It’s important to note that although Cora had this profound experience in her life, Cora continued to show affection and welcome to her Mormon friends and acquaintances.  She never disparaged or demeaned the LDS beliefs and practices.

Once she arrived in Los Angeles, Cora’s mystical experiences increased, and she sought out spiritual direction from the nearby Jesuit community. 

About a year later, Jesus entrusted Cora with a unique mission: to promulgate the teaching of the “Mystical Humanity of Christ” – a Pauline-style Christology that echoed Pius XII’s own Mystici Corporis. Cora also taught a unique way of prayer that encourages people to develop an awareness of the indwelling presence of Jesus in their daily lives, centered always on the Eucharist. 

As a part of her mystical life, Cora was commanded by Christ to write extensively of her visions and conversations with Him. Despite her limited education, she presented complex Christological and soteriological ideas consistent with Catholic belief, but with new insights and in a style accessible to the average reader. Her writings total nearly three thousand pages. For the last eight years of her life Cora was graced with the stigmata, whose sufferings she joyfully offered for the needs of those who sought her help and for the conversion of others.

There appear to be three principal elements of Cora’s Mission as she identified them over the course of her life. First, Cora was a “seer” in the mystical life, charged by Christ with relating His messages to the Catholic faithful. Second, Cora saw herself as a convert to Catholicism and as a bridge between LDS believers and her new faith. Third, Cora’s great contribution to Christology or the understanding of Jesus as Savior is found in her most widely read work, The Refugee from Heaven. 

The Christ of Cora Evans brings beauty to the world as He embraces people of every race and tongue. As a result, Cora saw Christ as made human in the myriad of cultures and peoples that have lived on the earth since its start. Her unique writings are filled with the urgency of care for the earth, the love of God for all, and her desire to see the message of Christ brought to everyone who would hear it.
Cora was also known throughout her life for the gifts of prophecy, the reading of hearts, extraordinary intercessions for others and for the practice of virtues in an exemplary way. 

In her final years, Cora fought cancer with enormous patience and forbearance. By a special grace, Bishop Duane Hunt visited her just prior to her death in 1957 on the 22nd anniversary of her baptism as a Catholic.   

Following her death, many have received favors through her intercession, though no miraculous events have been reported. Yet during her life, there is evidence of parents seeking her intercession for a severely ill child, who was cured. 

The Diocese of Monterey has sponsored this cause since its opening in November of 2012 by my predecessor, Bishop Richard Garcia. Thank you.

The Importance of the cause for the local and universal Church

The mission entrusted to Cora Evans by our Lord is the promulgation of the Mystical Humanity of Christ – the divine indwelling – throughout the world. This is Eucharistic spirituality, encouraging the faithful to live with a heightened awareness of the living presence of Christ in the ordinary circumstances of the daily lives. Cora’s mission fully supports the mission of USCCB especially as it relates to Eucharistic renewal in parishes and for the universal Church.

The Remarkable Story of Servant of God Cora Evans

By Michael McDevitt, Custodian for the Writings of Cora Evans

SERVANTS OF GOD ARE KNOWN BY THEIR STORIES. Their lives were given freely to the Lord in response to the circumstances at the time, and for the good of the whole Church. They did not ask for or expect to be in the situations in which they found themselves. These men and women radiated the holiness of God dwelling within them. It is the story of their lives, how they responded to grace, their impact on others, combined with God’s proof by miracles in their name that led the pope to declare, “We know for certain this person is with God in Heaven.”

Only God can make a saint. At this stage there is no certainty that Cora Evans will become a canonized saint. Today, she is a Servant of God1, and her cause for Beatification and Sainthood is under way in the Diocese of Monterey, California. 

Cora Evans was born July 9, 1904, and she passed away March 30, 1957. Her first mystical experience, an apparition of the Blessed Mother, took place when she was three years old. It was an event she could not fully comprehend and would never forget. Many years would pass before she understood the vision and the message.

Cora was raised a Mormon and was married to Maclellan Evans in the well-known Mormon Temple in Salt Lake City, Utah. That event was the turning point in her life. She left the secret ceremony disillusioned and disappointed with Mormonism, especially the doctrine that placed man-made gods above the God of Abraham. “I was without a God and religion but had gained a very wonderful husband. As I looked at him and learned to love him more and more, I resolved to help find a God for him.  After ten years of searching, we found the One True God in the Roman Catholic Church.”

During the ten years that followed the marriage ceremony, Cora and Mack had three children. They suffered the loss of a child, Bobby, when he was ten months old.  Cora investigated many religions, but believed it would be a waste of time to even inquire about Catholicism. Although she no longer considered herself a Mormon, she held on to pervasive anti-Catholic warnings she learned growing up in Utah. 

On December 9, 1934, Cora was quite ill. The family lived in Ogden, Utah, at the time. Cora was in bed and the radio was on the other side of the room. No one was home and she was too sick to get out of bed to change the station when the Catholic Hour began broadcasting. Despite her aversion to Catholicism, Cora was forced to listen to Monsignor Duane Hunt2 talk about the Blessed Mother and the teachings of the Catholic faith. His message conflicted with the negative stories Cora had been told about Catholics. As soon as she recovered, Cora went to nearby St. Joseph Catholic Church to inquire about the faith and have her questions answered. This was a courageous move for a former Mormon. A series of meetings followed, including debates in her home between the parish priest, Father Edward Vaughn, and several Mormon bishops. Cora quickly became aware of the truth of Christianity and the obvious false stories told about Catholics. She appreciated Father Vaughn’s demeanor and the clarity of his responses to questions about Catholic doctrine. Cora was baptized March 30, 1935, and received her first Holy Communion the next day. Mack and their daughters, LaVonne and Dorothy, followed her lead a few months later.
Cora influenced many Mormons to visit St. Joseph’s, inviting them to open house gatherings. Years later, Father Vaughn wrote a letter confirming that through Cora’s evangelization efforts there were hundreds of conversions of Mormons to the Catholic faith. 
door to eternal life.”

The Move to Southern California and Spiritual Guidance

Due to religious and cultural prejudices, it was virtually impossible for Cora’s husband, also a convert, to hold down a job. In 1941 the family moved to Southern California. In retrospect, I recognize this as God’s plan. Cora began having mystical experiences with much greater frequency. In response to her search for spiritual guidance, on February 20, 1945, Father Frank Parrish, S.J.3 was appointed her confessor and spiritual director by the Provincial4 of the Society of Jesus. The meeting took place at Loyola High School in Los Angeles. 

On December 24, 1946, Jesus revealed the mission entrusted to Cora. She learned that she was to promulgate the Mystical Humanity of Christ, a way of prayer that encourages people to live with a heightened awareness of the indwelling presence of Jesus in their daily lives. It is Eucharistic spirituality, and Jesus promised to foster the devotion.

Father Frank served as the spiritual guide of Cora’s soul for the rest of her life. His written account of events is testimony to Cora’s heroic virtues and her reputation of sanctity. 

Cora is considered a hidden mystic, and although there were many friends, including priests and religious, she was not known publically. There are many examples of visionaries who where unknown at the time of their death, including Saints Margaret Mary (devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus), Catherine Laboure (Miraculous Medal), and Sister Faustina (Divine Mercy). Like these women, there was never any publicity about Cora’s private revelation. 

The life story of Cora Evans, wife and mother, is that of a remarkable woman who practiced Christian virtues and earned a reputation for holiness. She became a daily communicant and one of her favorite devotions was the Stations of the Cross. At times she would say the stations in reverse, mirroring the way the Blessed Mother saw them as she walked home from the crucifixion. 

Cora’s gifts of mysticism5 are not in and of themselves sufficient grounds for the declaration of sainthood. It is the story of her life with the proof of heroic virtues that places everything else in context. 

Prior to opening the cause, in conformance with Canon Law, Bishop Richard Garcia obtained the nihil obstat6 for the cause for Beatification and Canonization of the Servant of God, Cora Evans. Bishop Richard J. Garcia passed away in 2018. 

Bishop Daniel E. Garcia who was installed Bishop of Monterey, January 29, 2019, authorized the Acts of the to proceed.

The purpose of Cora’s life, the suffering she endured, and her writings inspire the faithful to live with awareness of the living indwelling presence of Jesus known as the Mystical Humanity of Christ.

Lessons from the Life of Cora Evans by Jeannie Ewing


After her disillusionment with the Mormon faith of her childhood, Cora Evans – wife and mother – converted to Catholicism in Utah in 1935. A rather radical decision at the time, Cora was drawn by an innate mystical spirituality of drawing in unitive love with Our Lord. For her, it could only be fulfilled in the Catholic faith, though she did not know this with certitude until she was in her thirties. 
She was only twenty at the time of rejecting the Mormonism into which she had been baptized as a child. At that point, she spent a long ten-year quest to search for truth. She discovered it in the Catholic Church after spending many hours listening to a radio program hosted by Monsignor Duane Hunt.

 
Although she was never formally educated alongside her peers, she felt a conviction to write. This, to her, was clearly inspiration from the Holy Spirit. She had suffered from various illnesses throughout her childhood, which had prevented her from completing her academic studies. Despite her lack of schooling, she followed this divine prompting and penned beautiful personal letters, descriptions of her visions, and conversations with God.

Since these are known as private revelations, there is no obligation to accept the musings of Cora Evans. Still, based on her life – which some may label ordinary – we can glean hints of the ways in which she exemplified virtue and grew in holiness, also encouraging others to do the same.
Cora Evans’ spirituality is, quite possibly, so remarkable, because of her ordinariness. She was a lay woman, married with children, and did not possess any spectacular abilities or talents. Yet she strove, in her own way and along her own journey on Earth, toward Jesus. Her particular love for the Eucharist fortified her to perhaps even love the ordinary, rather than seek pomp and popularity.

Yet she accomplished, without trying, what so few of us do in our lifetime – the conversion of not only her own soul, but the soul of thousands of others. In the span of three years, Cora persuaded a plethora of Mormons to visit St. Joseph Catholic Church, and they, too, began a journey into the Catholic Church.

Her mystical revelations began in July 1938. This was the turning point by which she described her “vow day” of dedicating her entire life to God. When God gifted her with the stigmata, she learned of the perpetual loneliness, rejection, skepticism, and ridicule that accompanied such a miracle.

Despite losing friends and family members after her conversion, Cora clung to Jesus for strength. She was convinced that He was the Source of her life, of her breath, of everything – particularly since she was well aware of her own weaknesses, both physical limitations and lack of proper education. 

The Cause for Canonization

The cause for Cora Evans’ canonization is rooted in her exemplary humility, perseverance in trials, and fortitude. She was also supremely obedient to the Magisterium and sought spiritual counsel regarding her mystical experiences, never wavering from what she was instructed to do about and with these. 

The phrase “mystical humanity of Christ” is attributed to Cora, because she believed strongly that all of us can draw nearer to Jesus’ humanity and thus enter into His Divine Heart more closely. Perhaps it is actually the humanity of Jesus that drew Cora nearer to Him during her physical and emotional suffering, because she knew He was the only One who would fulfill the deepest longings of her heart.

Selected Quotes from Cora Evans

“We are His portable tabernacles! What a mission in life!”

Cora lived her entire life immersed in this truth. She took seriously the responsibility every one of us has to care for ourselves and others, to notice that each of us is a reflection of God and to therefore freely forgive, unconditionally love, and gently correct. If we all carried the image of our souls as portable tabernacles, I wonder how we might change for the better, how we might consider the weight of our words before they are spoken or respond to the Holy Spirit rather than hesitate.

“Your life here on earth is but a means of winning the reward of life everlasting.”

Only those who have worn the invisible cloak of physical suffering and chronic pain can keep the perspective that we are pilgrims, sojourners on earth and that our final destination is heaven. That is our hope, and it was Cora’s too – that no matter what we suffer on earth, that suffering has been redeemed by Jesus and can powerfully transform us and the world in which we live.

“How well it is to learn the rule that we cannot escape life and the unique trials that our chosen vocations bring upon us.”

The problem that happens when we fall into dark despondency and even teeter on the brink of despair is this – we forget that no one is exempt from trials. Part of the human condition is learning to live with, and possibly embrace, our crosses. Cora learned this from a young age after suffering from bouts of physical ailments. Most of us squander our sufferings in the vain attempt to “get to the other side,” that is, to get healed or find peace. We forget that healing and peace do not happen without the crucible of suffering, by which our souls are refined and purified.

“Souls are masterpieces – our visible life is the canvas upon which we try painting the image of Jesus.”

If we all saw each other the way Cora saw people – individuals, not simply a collective humanity – we might carry with us this image of Jesus in every conversation or encounter. I find that I’m constantly surprised by the connections God places in my life, always when I least expect them.

When I enter a conversation with no pretenses or agenda, I am allowing the blank canvas of the other person to be painted by what is said or not said, by what is shared in the spoken word or in silence. Cora knew that we can hurt or heal by what we do and say to others, and she encouraged us all, as only she could in her gentle way, to keep at the forefront of our minds and hearts the fact that we are images of God but also instruments of God to others.
