In this seven-day retreat your director is Elizabeth Seton, founder of the American Sisters of Charity and the first American-born saint. Elizabeth assumed many roles in her life--wife, mother, widow, single parent, educator, mentor--finding in each task the necessary grace. She provides an example to those faced with the challenge of finding a spiritual center in the midst of many roles. Excerpts from the saint's journals and letters are woven into a week of prayer and deepening acquaintance. Copyright 2011. Approximate dimensions: 5.5 x 8.5 inches. Softcover. 97 pp.
