Milking cows, mysterious visions, boarding school, political disorder, and a miraculous medal with a secret...learn all about Saint Catherine Labouré in this exciting biography!
Perfect for ages 8 - 12, this 30th volume of the Encounter the Saints series familiarizes children with the story of Saint Catherine Labouré-from her childhood growing up on a farm, to attending boarding school to learn to read and write, to becoming a Daughter of Charity, to her death-all within the context of the political disorder that France experienced during the 1800s-all while Catherine was receiving visitations from the Blessed Mother.
Saint Catherine was committed to serving the poor, sick, and needy; but her encounters with the Virgin Mary changed her life and gave the world the Miraculous Medal.
