    • Abstract:
      Maria Francesa Cabrini gained the recognition of the world by helping alleviate the suffering of the poor. By founding the Missionary Sisters of the Sacred Heart , she put into place a system of schools, hospitals, orphanages, and convents in the United States, Latin America, Europe, and other parts of the world. Described as the Mother Teresa of the 1800’s, Mother Cabrini was the first citizen of the United States to be named a saint in the Roman Catholic Church.
