This book consists of letters written by St. Frances Xavier Cabrini. 

Frances Xavier Cabrini (1850-1917), b. near Milan, Italy; d. Chicago, IL. "She was a public school teacher before she founded the Institute of the Missionary Sisters of the Sacred Heart of Jesus in 1880. Pope Leo XIII directed her great apostolic zeal toward the masses of Italian immigrants who were crossing the ocean to the United States at the end of the 1880's. She first arrived in New York City in 1889. Tireless in her efforts to assist Italian immigrants to the United States, she established schools, orphanages and hospitals for them, not only in the state of New York but also in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Illinois, Louisiana, Colorado and California...She was beatified by Pope Pius XI in 1938 and canonized in 1946 by Pope Pius XII. Naturalized in 1909 in Seattle, Washington, Saint Frances Xavier Cabrini became the first American citizen to be proclaimed a saint." - publisher.
