Ancilla Domini.

A candle fair tapered but to bear consuming Light was lit by Love… and in the dark that little spark enflamed the world! (front)

Ways of Helping Your Sister. The Way of Prayer: Mountains of them for vocations, for conversions, for God's blessings on our work. The Way of Alms: No offering is too small, none too great. The Way of Stamps: Cancelled stamps of every kind. No, we don't decorate the house with them, we sell them to philatelists and use the revenue for our Missions. The Way of Subscribers: By subscribing to our bi-monthly magazine, our periodical contact with our friends. The Way of Vocations: American young women who wish to give their lives to God in the service of the Foreign Missions. The Way of New Friends: To take the place of those who have gone, to say a word for us to those who know us not, to become sub-missionaries, helping from behind the lines. (back)
