“I would place Claudette LaVerdiere’s biography of Mother Rogers as one of the best I have read in the last forty years."
—Kenneth J. Zanca, Catholic Library World
This study of the life and spirituality of Mother Mary Joseph Rogers reveals the history and source of the mission vision that formed the Maryknoll Sisterss of St Dominic, who celebrated the centennial of their founding in 2012. Mother Mary Joseph saw beyond the boundaries of the world in which she lived, more than a century ago, a much wider world full of possibilities for women religious and those called to mission.
Sr. Claudette LaVerdiere, M.M., is a former president of the Congregation of the Maryknoll Sisters of Saint Dominic based in Ossining, NY. She has worked in East Africa and Myanmar.
