Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Joyce Rice
Catherine Laboure was raised on a farm in France and had learned early in her life how to work hard. Catherine's mother died when she was young and even though she spent some time with an aunt, her dream was to be a Daughter of Charity, a Catholic organization that cared for the poor and elderly. Catherine's dream was planted by a vision she received from God, telling her that she would one day have that mission. Through the difficult years of losing her mother to death, being separated from her father and having to give up her dreams in obedience to her father, Catherine served in patience and love, knowing that one day Mother Mary would intervene for her and she would realize her dream. Catherine did indeed become a sister in the Daughter of Charity house and during her period of being a novitiate, she resided in the House in Paris, where Mother Mary came to her in a vision and showed her some tasks that she wanted Catherine to achieve. One of those tasks was to develop a medal depicting the hearts of Mother Mary and her son, Jesus. Through the next decades, Catherine would keep her secret from all except the few to who she owed obedience. As war came to France and people in her life came and went, Catherine would see many of these tasks completed and would see them become a blessing to the people she served. This series of introductions to the saints of the Catholic Church, "Encounter the Saints," introduces all ages to the process of sainthood in the Church. The 120-page, paperback format makes this volume appealing to young adult and middle school readers. The simplicity of the presentation makes this a quick read that could also be used as a devotional in youth programs or family devotionals. The validity of this as a general collection purchase is probably weak, but for those libraries serving religious institutions this is an excellent purchase. A glossary and sample prayer to Saint Catherine is included.
