About this Book:
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. In Saint Catherine Labouré and Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal, children will discover how Catherine's friendship with God and her care for others show us how to live Our Lady's message.
