Rene Laurentin On the evening of July 18, 1830, an extraordinary event occurred in the life of a young novice. Waking shortly before midnight at the insistent summons of an angel, Catherine Labouré hastened to make an appointment requested of her by the Virgin Mary. Over the next several months, this privileged young woman would understand that she was to be the carrier of a message greater than herself, a message that must remain a secret between her and heaven.... The fascinating and inspiring story of the French Sister of Charity who became the focus of much popular devotion after it became known that the Virgin Mary appeared to her three times in 1830. St. Catherine Labourè's story of courage and holiness. This well-researched depiction of Catherine's life and sanctity is engaging and accessible. An inspiring read for anyone with a particular devotion to St. Catherine Labourè or an interest in mysticism. This book will touch anyone who admires courage, faith, and kindness.
