A Family Together - October 2010

Saint Marianne Cope of Molokai

She is famous for nursing lepers in Hawaii after St. Damien caught the disease, but there's much more. Sister Marianne's stamina and dedication were remarkable. And she was a catechist--one who believed that the gospel in action speaks louder than words.
