Title: VISION BOOKS: SAINT KATHARINE DREXEL: FRIEND OF THE OPPRESSED
The Vision Books for youth nine to fifteen years old are one of the most popular and well-written series of saints' lives ever produced for young people. Ellen Tarry tells the beautiful story of America's recently canonized saint, servant of the oppressed, St. Katharine Drexel. Katharine Drexel used the fortunes she inherited to help the less fortunate in America, especially the Indians and African Americans. Katharine became a religious sister and in 1891 founded the order of the Sisters of the Blessed Sacrament. She died in 1955 and was canonized by Pope John Paul II in 2001. Illustated. 157 pages.
