Case Study in Courage
Mother Caroline Friess

Conversation with Gerry

S. Geresine Leffert, SSND, was received by Mother Caroline in 1887. Her memories of meeting Mother Caroline were vivid as she shared with the author in the late 1960's. Engage in this interview which took place a few years before her death in 1970. Do the ideas remembered touch your heart? Do they give a picture of Caroline, as both Mother and American foundress?
