Song of Silence

Jeanne Jugan, also known as Sister Mary of the Cross, was canonized by Pope Benedict XVI in October 2009. Saint Jeanne Jugan, foundress of the Little Sisters of the Poor, was not recognized as such until after her death. Jeanne lived through repeated betrayals and transformed these trials into a path toward holiness that helped her connect with the suffering of Christ. Read the fascinating spiritual journey of this remarkable saint. Includes a foreword by Cardinal Seán P. O’Malley, Archbishop of Boston, as well as photos of Jeanne Jugan and the locations mentioned in the book. “There is in [Jeanne Jugan] something so calm, and so holy, that in seeing her I know myself to be in the presence of a superior being. Her words went straight to my heart, so that my eyes, I know not how, filled with tears.” — Charles Dickens, Victorian author and contemporary of Jeanne Jugan
