Katharine Drexel: Learning to Love the Poor
Murray, Cecilia
Catholic Education: A Journal of Inquiry and Practice, v9 n3 p307-319 Mar 2006
Although born into privilege, Katharine Drexel was blessed with parents, siblings, friends, and spiritual guides who kept her rooted in a deep, Eucharistic faith. Responding to the needs of the poor was a responsibility of the rich, and Katharine learned this value at the hands of her parents at an early age. With the good counsel of popes and bishops, family and friends, she ultimately used her great family wealth to provide education for the poor.
