Binding tight; boards clean; dust jacket with very light wear to edges. Black and white photographic section. Quoting the publisher's note: This is the inspiring account of a woman who has become a legend in her own time, a woman who turned her back on a secure life to battle deprivation and disease, a fighter in the tradition of the famous Dr. Tom Dooley. In the community of Bahia in northeast Brazil, Maria Rita Lopes Pontes was born into a comfortable and affectionate family, traditional and secure in its belief in God and country. Even as a youngster she was drawn to the poor and unfortunate and dedicated her life to helping them. She has mastered the quality which Brazilians call jeito, a combination of charm, skill, daring, and shrewdness, which she uses with remarkable effectiveness. Sister Dulce's life is a daily battle against poverty, disease, local corruption, and bureaucratic indifference. She faces these challenges with force and cunning, using her faith as her shield.

Item Description: Paulinas, São Paulo. Tapa Blanda. Book Condition: New. 21x14. Nascida em 26 de maio de 1914, Maria Rita de Sousa Lopes Pontes ficou órfã de mãe aos 7 anos, mas teve uma infância alegre. A partir dos 13 anos, porém, influenciada pela tia Madalena, que lhe recordou de seus deveres como cristã, e impressionada pela condição miserável da população pobre de Salvador, passou a acolher mendigos e doentes em casa, sentindo o despertar do desejo de se dedicar à vida religiosa. Aos 16 anos, ela deixou a casa e a família para entrar para a Congregação das Irmãs Missionárias da Imaculada Conceição da Mãe de Deus. Aos 20 anos, no dia 15 de agosto de 1934, consagrou-se a Deus com os votos religiosos e recebeu o nome de Dulce, em homenagem a sua mãe. Sua vida, desde então, foi de devoção aos pobres. Fundou o o Círculo Operário da Bahia, o hospital Santo Antônio, que abriga crianças e oferece cursos professionalizntes, entre outros. 300 gr. Bookseller Inventory # 1-124171-2
