Four of them were women killed by the military in El Salvador: Maryknoll Sisters Ita Ford and Maura Clarke, Ursuline Sister Dor­othy Kazel, and lay-missioner Jean Donovan. The seventh, Maryknoll Sister Carla Piette, who also died in El Salvador, represents what Pope Francis has recently called a "martyr of charity," who laid down her life for her neighbors.

All of these martyrs challenged an unjust sta­tus quo in the countries where they ministered. This book offers a riveting and troubling story of their heroic witness. Although their lives, back­grounds, and beliefs varied widely, they held a common faith and hope: to better the lives of the poor among whom they lived and worked.
