The Anthracite Valley of Pennsylvania a Study of the Social Services Rendered by the Missionary Servants of the Most Blessed Trinity to Mining Families 1940–1955
The work of the Missionary Servants of the Most Blessed Trinity is almost as varied as is the number of places in which it is performed. Some of it is predominantly catechetical or pedagogical, social or medical. But it is always missionary- seeking to reclaim those who are lost to the Faith or to strengthen and encourage those who are in danger of losing it. Since lukewarmness or defection from religious duties is often symptomatic of other problems, a Missionary Servant in her attempts to revitalize a person’s spiritual life may be called upon to render help in problems of a social nature. In carrying out the admonition of her beloved Father and Founder, Father Thomas A. Judge, "Save the child and you save all", a Sister may find herself working with the entire family in order to provide a happier and more stable environment.
