The person on the first page of the US Catechism (partially written by my homiletics instructor, Fr. Alfred McBride) is Elizabeth Ann Seton. Born in 1774, in New York City, she married and had several children. Her husband died and this Episcopalian came into contact with some strong Roman Catholics; she came into full communion with the Catholic Church. She founded the Sisters of Charity in USA. Her story demonstrates human longing for God. As a woman who lived as a wife, mother, widow, religious sister, and Foundress, she has much to teach us. She answered the call.
