Item Description...
Overview
The inspiring story of an American nun who died defending the poor and God's creation. "I strongly identify with the journey of Sister Dorothy Stang: from teaching kids in school, to recognizing Jesus in the poor, to embracing a faith that does justice-wherever that may lead. Sr. Dorothy gave her life for the gospel. Her witness on behalf of God's creation and the poor could not offer a more timely challenge and inspiration." -Sr. Helen Prejean, author, Dead Man Walking . . . The hired gunmen who confronted Sister Dorothy asked her if she was carrying a weapon. She produced her Bible and began to read from the Beatitudes: "Blessed are the poor in spirit . . . Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for justice . . . Blessed are the peacemakers . . . ." And then they shot her. The murder in 2005 of an American nun, Sister Dorothy Stang, focused the world's attention on the plight of poor farmers in the Brazilian Amazon and their struggles against rapacious developers. Sister Dorothy had worked in Brazil for forty years. From a conventional nun in the pre-Vatican II era, she had developed a keen social conscience and, increasingly, a deep, mystical commitment to the integrity of Creation. These ideals combined in her advocacy for the rights of the poor and her defense of the imperiled rain forest. They also earned her the enmity of land-grabbing ranchers who repeatedly threatened her. "All I ask," she wrote, "is God's grace to help me keep on this journey, fighting for the people to have a more egalitarian life and that we learn to respect God's creation."

Reviews - What do our customers think?
An excellent biographical survey recommended for any spiritual library.  Jan 5, 2008
The murder in 2005 of an American nun focused world attention on poor formers in the this site and their struggles with developers: for it was Sister Dorothy who helped these farmers in their struggles both spiritually and socially - and who died for her ideals, which went beyond Christian advocacy. MARTYR OF THE this site: THE LIFE OF SISTER DOROTHY STANG probes her world, influences and impact and is an excellent biographical survey recommended for any spiritual library.
 
Martyr of the Amazon  Nov 29, 2007
I was impressed with the self-sacrificing attitude of Sr Dorothy. To endure so much negativism and lack of understanding or support from the Brazilian government and corporate land holders, and still keep a smile on her face and love in her heart is a strong lesson for all of us who have so little to endure. Sr. Dorothy's love for all of God's people, but, especially for those who are victimized, is uplifting. It gives me an example to try harder to be a loving, cheerful person.
 
Now this is a real saint  Oct 22, 2007
I have heard talk about the desire to canonize Pope John Paul II. I would like to suggest that we canonize this lovely and courageous woman. She certainly radiated the love of Jesus to the very end.
