Book Description Darton, Longman and Todd, London, 1991. Hard Cover. Condition: Near Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Near Fine. A near Fine unmarked copy (Fine apart from age toning to page edges) with near Fine dustjacket which is not price clipped. Second impression (first was also 1991). xv + 363 pages.18 illustrations. Errata sheet included. Cornelia Connelly was called 'that bold woman' before it was considered a compliment. She is best known as the founder of the Society of the Holy Child Jesus, but her dramatic life and achievements have, until now, been largely ignored. She was a convert to Roman Catholicism, a married woman and a mother. Her life changed dramatically when her husband, Pierce, announced his decision to become a priest. She subsequently agreed to a legal separation, took a vow of chastity, and committed herself to follow the religious life in England. But Pierce Connelly renounced his Catholic faith and reneged on his decision; in a celebrated court case he went on to sue Cornelia, unsuccessfully, for restitution of conjugal rights.In an age when women were regarded as men's property, when society and the Church expected them to be unquestioningly obedient and submissive, Cornelia Connelly struggled to retain her integrity and to be true to her God. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Seller Inventory # 009788

Book Description Darton, Longman & Todd Ltd, London, 1991. Hardcover. Reprinted 1991. xv, [1], 363, [1] p. Illustrations. Sources. Notes. Index. Foreword by Rosemary Haughton. From Wikipedia: Cornelia Connelly (January 15, 1809 April 18, 1879), born Cornelia Peacock, was the born founder of the Society of the Holy Child Jesus, a Roman Catholic religious institute. She was born in Philadelphia in 1809, began her conversion to Roman Catholicism in the southern US, and in 1846 founded the first of many Holy Child schools, in England. After both her parents' deaths, she came to live with her older sister and her sister's husband. She married Pierce Connelly, an Episcopal priest, despite her family's protests, in December 1831, and the two moved to Natchez, Mississippi, where Pierce had accepted the rectorship of the Holy Trinity Episcopal church. During this time their family grew, and experienced tragedy. In early 1840, still grieving the death of a baby daughter while living in Grand Coteau, Louisiana, Cornelia made her first retreat of three days. God touched her deeply, and her interior life was profoundly changed. In February, her two-year old son John Henry was playing with his dog when the dog accidentally pushed him into a vat of boiling sugar. He died of severe burns in Cornelia's arms after 43 hours. From this anguish Cornelia's lifelong devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary as Mother of Sorrows was born. Pregnant with her fifth child in October of the same year, Pierce told her he felt called to the priesthood. Despite their youth, Cornelia agreed to move to Rome. Soon afterward Rev. Connelly elected to enter the Roman Catholic priesthood, where in July 1845 Pierce was ordained. After considerable prayer and soul-searching, Cornelia too found a calling to serve God. She went with just two of her children to Rome hoping to join the Society of the Sacred Heart. With a higher ordained priest's help she applied to create a new teaching religious institute, shortly thereafer approved by Pope Gregory XVI. In 1846, the new Foundress, with her two youngest children and three companions, arrived in Derby. The Society of the Holy Child Jesus had begun. Its beginning was small and there were many deprivations, but a spirit of joy and peace prevailed; Cornelia was able to inspire in her sisters something of her own serenity in adversity. Soon they were running schools for the poor and needy, and holding day, night, and Sunday classes to accommodate the young factory workers. The institute, whose constitution is based on that of the Jesuits, remains devoted to teaching young women, and operates schools primarily in the United States. As her Society grew and her work in education flourished, great personal anguish returned when Pierce renounced his priesthood and his Catholic faith and came to England to regain custody of their children. He removed them from the schools they were attending and denied Cornelia all contact with them, hoping thus to force her to return to him as his wife. He even pressed a lawsuit against her that gained notoriety in England, but the courts rejected his claim after a retrial. Cornelia Connelly died on 18 April 1879, at St Leonards-on-Sea, Sussex, where she had established a school. Today, the Sisters of the Holy Child Jesus are active in fourteen countries, striving to live the apostolic life as Cornelia did, seeking to meet the wants of the age through works of spiritual mercy. They are engaged in education and related spiritual and pastoral ministries. In 1992, the Catholic Church proclaimed Cornelia as Venerable. Good in very good dust jacket. Signed by author. Some page discoloration or it may just be off-white. DJ has slight wear and soiling. Seller Inventory # 66393
