The Quiet Flame

Eva K. BETZ (1897 - 1968)

“You will never be a leper nor will any Sister of our Order.”

The amazing promise was made by Mother Marianne of Molokai, the “Quiet Flame” of the this title who, as a Sister of St. Francis , spent 30 years on that island helping lepers during and after the time of Father Damien.

Mother was speaking to a young nun, and she spoke the truth. Not one of the Sisters ever did contract the disease, a notable fact considering the tender care they fostered on the lepers.

This story of this good nun, was written by the author of a number of Catholic biographies and fiction books for children. (Summary from original jacket and Maria Therese)
