“Beyond Borders”: Life and Spirituality of Little Sister Magdeleine
(Ed.St Pauls, Philippines 2010  ISBN 978-971-004-072-8) by Angelika Daiker
translated from the German
The author wrote her doctoral dissertation on the theme: Contemplatives in the midst of the world, the Little Sisters of Jesus. In this work she wants to make known from the inside the spiritual experience and charism of the foundress of the Little Sisters of Jesus. Magdeleine, marked by a mystical experience of the incorporation of the Infant Jesus within her and by the poverty of Jesus in the Crib, made known to the little sisters the experience of being beyond borders and being rooted in milieus that are the furthest away and most excluded in the world.
