Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
What a beautiful book of how simple nuns were able to help women and children in the 1880's. Even though it was a male-priest dominated society, these uneducated women, clothed in black that only showed their face and hands and living under a medieval dictate were able to thrive. As a child I was taught by this order in New York City and always knew that these quiet women were a force to behold. Thank you, Sisters of Charity for quietly relieving the city's poor. Your history was and will never be taught in the Catholic schools. I always knew you could do anything you put your mind to.
