“Mother Cabrini, the First American Saint of the Catholic Church” is the feature article in the recently released Spring 2023 issue of Humanities: The Magazine of the National Endowment for the Humanities. Penned by Nick Ripatrazone the article eloquently details Mother Cabrini’s mission to serve the spiritual and temporal needs of the Italian immigrants. Ripatrazone’s article cites preeminent biographies: Mother Frances Xavier Cabrini by Mother Saverio DeMaria, Immigrant Saint: The Life of Mother Cabrini by Pietro Di Donato, Too Small a World: The Life of Francesca Cabrini by Theodore Maynard, To the Ends of the Earth: The Missionary Travels of Frances X. Cabrini (translated by Sr. Philippa Provenzano, MSC), and “Mother Cabrini: Italian Immigrant of the Century” by
Sr. Mary Louise Sullivan, MSC.
