Editorial Reviews

Review

"I strongly identify with the journey of Sister Dorothy Stang: from teaching kidsn school, to recognizing Jesus in the poor, to embracing a faith that does justice--wherever that may lead. Sr. Dorothy gave her life for the gospel. Her witness on behalf of God's creation and the poor could not offer a more timely challenge and inspiration."

I have heard talk about the desire to canonize Pope John Paul II. I would like to suggest that we canonize this lovely and courageous woman. She certainly radiated the love of Jesus to the very end.

The murder in 2005 of an American nun focused world attention on poor formers in the Amazon and their struggles with developers: for it was Sister Dorothy who helped these farmers in their struggles both spiritually and socially - and who died for her ideals, which went beyond Christian advocacy. MARTYR OF THE AMAZON: THE LIFE OF SISTER DOROTHY STANG probes her world, influences and impact and is an excellent biographical survey recommended for any spiritual library.

I was impressed with the self-sacrificing attitude of Sr Dorothy. To endure so much negativism and lack of understanding or support from the Brazilian government and corporate land holders, and still keep a smile on her face and love in her heart is a strong lesson for all of us who have so little to endure. Sr. Dorothy's love for all of God's people, but, especially for those who are victimized, is uplifting. It gives me an example to try harder to be a loving, cheerful person.
