The First Catholics of the United States
Catholicism was brought to the United States by extraordinary missionaries. Driven by faith, courage and sacrifice, they planted the seeds of faith, even to the point of shedding their blood. Junipero Serra, Andrew White and Isaac Jogues are just a few of the hundreds of missionaries who labored in the many territories of this country and nurtured the seeds of the Catholic faith. It is important for today's Catholics to know who the pioneers of their faith were, where they came from, where they labored, what challenges they faced, how they lived and what they achieved with their efforts. The First Catholics of the United States deals with all these matters and provides a vision of the early years of Catholicism in this country. Its reading will generate a sense of pride in all Catholics who value their faith and will deepen the desire to put it into practice.
