SISTERS OF MARYKNOLL by Sister Mary De Paul Cogan


Email this review


The Foreign Mission Sisters of St. Dominie better known as the ""Sisters of Maryknoll"" represent the female branch of one of Catholicism's great missionary organizations, 240 sisters were stationed in the orient at the outbreak of the war. They were in the Philippines, Hong Kong, Shangh Korea and Menchuk. Their experiences during the war period are here related by a careful editing of diaries, letters and reports. It is a record of which the Roman Catholic Church and all Americans may well be proud. These good woman suffered much in interment camps and pri, but their de duty never flagged and they are now able to return to their posts with stiti opportunity for service open before time. One ight wish that the material contained in this volume might have been placed in the hands of a skilled publicist who could have made a much more vivid story out of it. But as it is, we have a sincere and honest testimony to the kind of service rendered by these sisters.
