Here is the definitive, authorized American-English edition of La Venerabile Maria Lorenza Longo: Foundress of the Hospital of the Incurables and of the Capuchin Poor Clares of Naples, 1463-1542 written by the beloved Fr. Agostino Falanga, OFM Cap. It is the biography of Maria Longo, whose life seemed doomed to suffering, until she was miraculously cured at Our Lady s Home at Loretto, and from that moment on focused her life on serving the poorest of the poor not unlike Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta in our own age. Also like Mother Teresa, Maria founded a religious order and a hospital. She was a contemporary of, and friends with, Saint Cajetan of Thiene, the founder of the Theatines. This book will be an edifying read for all Franciscans and Theatines. 159196 Agostino Falanga
