Francis was chosen for this purpose, and, with a party of priests, set sail in the year 1589. After leaving Panama the ship was overtaken by a storm, and being thought no longer safe was abandoned by the crew; but Francis, taking pity on the unhappy creatures left behind, many of whom were blacks and unbaptised, resolved to share their fate. For some days the ship bore up; but after a time a portion was split away, the hinder portion sinking, and the fore part, upon which the Saint was found, still remained afloat, until a boat came to their relief and conveyed the remaining portion of its unhappy crew to shore. Here their troubles were far from being at an end. It was a barren coast upon which they were landed, and it needed all the Saint's patience and skill to prevent fierce quarrels over the scanty food which was found, and often he appeased the hunger of the famishing wretches by a miraculous drawing of fish to shore. A crew was sent back to Panama in a small boat, and after sixty days a ship returned and conveyed them back to safety. St. Francis then began missionary life in earnest. Peru and Tucuman were the principal scenes of his labour; but the last five years he preached chiefly at Lima"--Legends of the Blessed Sacrament ; "pictorial stiff paper wrappers ; crease on cover ; slight wear, else VG

Her parents died of small pox when the girl was four. She was raised by her uncle, the new chief, who wanted no part of the Christian faith. Kateri believed that the French missionary priests had brought to her village the message of the one true God. She was attracted to the Eucharistic Jesus and to the love of neighbor the blackrobes taught. She desired with all her heart to become a Christian. That desire led her down paths more treacherous than the densest of forest trails. Kateri was persecuted and ostracized for her refusal to conform to traditional Iroquois ways. Even so, she felt compelled to live out her short life totally dedicated to God through her vow of virginity." VG
