Product Description

Discover the world of Francesca Cabrini in this moving book that not only educates children about a remarkable person in American history, but inspires them with stories of her compassion, courage, vision, and miracles.

The first American citizen to be canonized, St. Frances Xavier Cabrini rescued forgotten children, even from the dark, damp sewers of New York City, and provided them with safe havens, loving comfort, and a quality education.

Within these endearing pages, children will encounter characters much like themselves—little heroes who joined Mother Cabrini in her mission to establish orphanages, hospitals, and schools across the United States, Central and Latin America, Europe, and beyond.

Through captivating storytelling, this book introduces young minds to the incredible journeys of a woman who, despite her frailty, overcomes countless challenges to bring God's love to the poor and forgotten. Even though Mother Cabrini was afraid of water, she received the strength to sail across the ocean more than two dozen times!
