In a dramatic display reminiscent of the mortification exercises of Santa Catalina de Siena, Isabel performed acts of martyrdom without permission from the priests: "Lamíale la llaga, hizelo algunos dias; y deziame que sentia gran regalo, . . hazia esto quando no lo via el Cura, porque si lo viera, no me dexara lo hiziera" (82) (I licked the wound for a few days.
