Seton's Description:
From the popular Vision Book Series of saint biographies by Ignatius Press. This Vision Book for youth tells the beautiful story of Americas' recently canonized saint, servant of the oppressed, St Katharine Drexel.

After the death of her parents the young Katharine decided to use all the fortune she had inherited to help the less fortunate in America, especially the Indians and African Americans. Acting upon the words she heard while praying before a statue of Our Lady, "Freely you have received, freely give," and from the direct advice of Pope Leo XIII to become a missionary, Katharine Drexel became a religious sister and in 1891 founded the order of the Sisters of the Blessed Sacrament. Mother Katharine and her sisters worked tirelessly to serve the material and spiritual needs of the downtrodden through numerous schools and institutions she established around the country. She died in 1955, and was canonized by Pope John Paul II in 2001. Recommended for 8th grade students. 157 pp.

This title is also sold as part of the 8th Grade Vision Reader Set.
