Product Description

The story of the First Missionary Sisters in Canada.

"It's almost upon us!" yelled a frantic voice aboard the Saint Joseph, as the iceberg neared the ship.

The huge mountain of gray-green ice looked like a floating castle-which would shatter the poor little wooden ship in a moment or two.

Just then the helmsman, confused and panic-stricken, turned his wheel in the wrong direction, bringing the iceberg even nearer! "It's the end of everything!" groaned the Captain.

"God's Will be done," prayed Mother Marie, as the collision loomed closer. If God wished her to drown in the icy Atlantic before ever reaching New France (Canada), His Holy Will be done. Yet perhaps-

Father Vimont quickly gave general absolution to the passengers and crew. Then he made a hurried vow to the Blessed Virgin Mary.

One of the nuns began the Litany of Loreto, and a trembling chorus of voices rose to Heaven: "Holy Mary, pray for us! Holy Mother of God, pray for us! Holy Virgin of Virgins, pray for us!"

This book tells what happened next. It also tells about the Indian children, the Iroquois, and the great fire - plus the codfish, the lice and the bear grease!

All in all, this is the great story of saintly Mother Marie of the Incarnation-and of how the holy Catholic Faith came to Canada. Ages 10+
