Behind the stories of war, plagues, and natural disasters are the unsung heroes. BecomingHuman tells the compelling story of one such group: the Society of Medical Mission Sisters. Godelieve Prové, a Flemish doctor and longtime sister of the Society, chronicles how the Sisters overcame the barriers within the patriarchal Roman Catholic Church to establish themselves as an organization of medical professionals committed to bringing relief to the suffering.
Becoming Human recounts the courageous work of the women as they worked long hours at medical facilities around the world and struggled with the conflicts among their personal experiences, internal doubts, and the patriarchal church. The book is a captivating stoy of the tireless and invaluable work of the Medical Mission Sisters throughout the turbulent twentieth century.
