Listen to a sample chapter!
The First American Sister of Charity: Elizabeth Bayley Seton is a picturesque and moving account of the life and work of Elizabeth Ann Bayley Seton (1774-1821), the first native-born citizen of the United States to be canonized a saint. She was born into high society during some of the most stirring times our country has ever known, the time of the Revolutionary War. Raised staunch Episcopalian, she was devout and true to her faith. Marrying young, she and her husband, William Magee Seton, refined, cultured, a true gentleman, set out joyfully to raise a family. Sadly, tragedy struck, financial losses caused his health to suffer and William was struck by the dreaded tuberculosis. The couple traveled to Italy seeking to restore his health by a sea voyage. Unfortunately, he died in Italy, unable to recover his health. However, while there the greatest gift was given Elizabeth, she gained the Catholic Faith, which became as balm to the soul of the grieved young widow. Returning to the U.S., Elizabeth answered the calling within her heart to further give her life to God, sacrificing all and working tirelessly to establish schools in New York and Maryland, and was the first to found a congregation of Religious Sisters in the United States, the Sisters of Charity of St. Joseph. She spent the rest of her days leading and developing the new congregation. This book gives beautiful detail to life of this American Saint, an excellent read!
