Called a “Missionary of the New Evangelization” by Pope John Paul II,
St. Frances Xavier Cabrini blazed a path of charity in the New World that is beyond compare.
Led by her fervent love of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and fueled by the Eucharist, Mother Cabrini founded the Missionary Sisters of the Sacred Heart and spent three decades journeying across North and South America, establishing 67 schools, orphanages, and hospitals to serve immigrants and the poor alike.
In this collection of 17 of her letters, journey with Mother Cabrini as she embarks on her calling “to communicate the love of Jesus to those who do not know Him or have forgotten Him.” Join her on the deck of steam ships as she criss-crosses the Atlantic, enduring seasickness and storms, and dodging icebergs. Venture with her through the mountains of South America on the back of a donkey as she establishes new missions. Be mesmerized with her descriptions of the American west, from Colorado to California. Listen as she explains with tenderness how to grow in holiness.
In addition to journeying her travels and the people she meets, her letters cover a wide range of topics of the Catholic faith:
  • The blessings of the Real Presence of Jesus Christ in the Eucharist
  • How to live the devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus
  • The importance of praying for the Holy Souls in Purgatory
  • How to trust in Divine Providence
  • The glories of Mary
  • The necessity of humility and obedience, and the graces we receive from them
  • The essential work of the missionary
  • The consequences of living for the world instead of for God
  • Filled with a mixture of entertainment, wisdom, and faith, Letters From the Voyages of St. Frances Cabrini is a work that will be read and re-read, and cherished for years to come.
