Love and Death in the 
Kingdom of Swaziland
by Glenn Alan Cheney
When two Missionary Sisters of Cabrini, Barbara Staley and Diane DalleMolle, arrived in Swaziland, a third of the population had AIDS, tuberculosis was endemic, and ten percent of the Swazi people were orphans. Children were raising children as the adults around them wasted away.

In the arid, thorn-bush outback of the Lubombo region, the sisters worked with little help from the outside world. Dealing with drought, illiteracy, disease, corruption, rape, black magic, witch doctors, and venomous snakes, they fed, housed, and educated over a hundred orphans. They established an HIV/TB clinic. They installed a municipal-scale water system. They introduced the Swazi culture to a new idea: the notion of loving thy neighbor.
His Hands on Earth
by Glenn Alan Cheney
The Missionary Sisters of the Sacred Heart of Jesus see themselves as Christ’s hands on earth. In the spirit of St. Francis Xavier Cabrini, they dedicate their lives to the poor, the sick, the immigrants, and everyone who needs help. This book profiles Sisters and their work in Italy, Swaziland, Ethiopia, Argentina, Brazil, Guatemala, Nicaragua, and Mexico. The depictions of their work are really lessons in geography, history, values, economics, ethics, current events, and much more. These true stories are education as much as inspiration.

To the Ends of the  Earth

by Sr. Maria Barbagallo, MSC

Sr. Maria’s life is a tour through much of the turbulence and conflicts of the past 80 years. She grew up in post-war Italy, then as a missionary sister spent decades in Central America. She was there, supporting the poor during earthquakes and revolutions. Then she served in Argentina during the military dictatorship. Her life is a lesson in courage, faith, and compassion with some of the neediest people in the world.
