Inspiring Account of Missionaries Sep 22, 2003
This book tells of the founding of the Society of the Divine Word in Germany by soon-to-be Saint Arnold Janssens, and of his sending the first SVDs to the USA. Then the struggles of the society to get established here are detailed and the whole history both in this country and in its missions overseas is set out. I found the book a most informative and inspiring account.
