On the Threshold of the Future
By: Claudette LaVerdiere, M.M.
This study of the life and spirituality of Mother Mary Joseph Rogers reveals the history and soure of the mission vision that formed the Maryknoll Sisters, who celebrated the centennial of their founding in 2012. Mother Mary Joseph saw beyond the boundaries of the world in which she lived, more than a century ago, a much wider world full of possibilities for women religious and those called to mission.
Sr. Claudette LaVerdiere, M.M., is a former president of the Congregation of the Maryknoll Sisters of Saint Dominic based in Ossining, NY. She has worked in East Africa and Myanmar.
