9780874620993: Fluent in Faith: The Gift of Mary McCormick

Fluent in Faith: the Gift of Mary McCormick shares the story of a remarkable, contemporary woman who in 1968, with the blessing of the Milwaukee Archdiocesan Latin American Office, went to Bogota, Colombia as a 56-year old widow with her three youngest daughters, ages 11, 14 and 17, intending to stay a year. She remained serving in Bogotá until 1994.

Marys life compels us to share it. It is no ordinary life. Yet Mary was an ordinary person who looked very common and lived simply. She embraced life with delightful Irish wit and an incredible trust in God. Mary never completely mastered the Spanish language during her 26 years in Colombia, yet from the first day she was fluent in faith.

Review:

Fluent in Faith illustrates perfectly that discerning ones vocation is a life-long process, requiring a heart finely tuned to the voice of God. Mary McCormicks extraordinary story should inspire each of us to listen very carefully and conjure up the courage to follow unexpected callings close to home or to the other side of the world. --Marie Dennis Co-President, Pax Christi International Former Director, Maryknoll Office for Global Concerns

As I researched my book, The Missionary Movement in American Catholic History, I found Mary McCormick to be an excellent example of a Papal Volunteer (PAVLA) who made a lasting impact with and among the people she served. Her story provides further insight into the role of lay missionaries, a movement that began to grow by the late 1940s. --Angelyn Dries, OSF Professor Emerita, Saint Louis University
