15 Days of Prayer with Saint Katharine Drexel

£7.50

Product Information

Author: Leo Luke Marcello

Born in 1858 into a socially prominent Philadelphia family, Katharine Drexel seemed destined to lead the life of a debutante. Instead, from the age of 33 until her death in 1955, she dedicated her life and fortune to the material and spiritual well-being of underprivileged Americans.
Mother Drexel founded the Sisters of the Blessed Sacrament and helped open schools for African- and Native Americans. She also founded Xavier University in New Orleans. For Katharine Drexel, sharing the bread of her life was an extension of her desire to share her wealth with those who had little. Pope John Paul II canonized her in October 2000.
