About this product
- DescriptionAs a young girl, Anna Abrikosova burned with the desire to teach others what was good, true and beautiful. But it wasn't until she came into contact with the Roman Catholic Church, and in particular the Dominican Order, that she found the fullness of goodness, truth and beauty. So deeply did she fall in love with the truth that upon her return to her native Russia she did all within her means to help others come to kw the truth. Soon other young women joined her in her work and the Byzantine Dominican Sisters were born. Despite threats of torture and death from the Communists who had taken over Russia, Mother Catherine, as she was w called, remained steadfast in her determination to bring the truth to others. For this she was arrested, imprisoned, and ultimately suffered a martyr's death. This short biography of Mother Catherine is an introduction to a heroic woman whose passionate desire for truth has caused the Catholic Church to consider her a true confessor of the faith and a martyr of the Russian Church.
- Author BiographySister Mary of the Sacred Heart, O.P., is a contemplative, cloistered Dominican nun living in the Monastery of St. Jude in Marbury, Alabama. Growing up on a farm in upstate New York, she always dreamed of being a published author, but this is her first published book. Her interest in Russia has inspired her research into the lives of Dominicans who lived and worked in Russia. In 1991, the first article about Dominicans in Russia was published in English, which led Sister to begin research into their lives. In 2002 Sister spent three months in Russia learning the language and culture, while exploring the possibility of a Dominican monastic community in Russia someday. During her stay she was able to meet some of the people who knew the Byzantine Dominican Sisters personally.
