And I Loved Them: Voices of a Prison Ministry by Josephine Migliore, David Whitaker

You cant change someone without love. Thats the credo Sister Josephine Migliore embodied on her weekly visits to Chicagos Cook County Correctional Center. For more than 14 years, this 84-year-old Catholic nun spent each Thursday offering friendship, counseling, & spiritual guidance to a revolving door of inmates awaiting trial or sentencing at the notorious jail. Moonlighting from her full-time post as director of patient services at Columbus Hospital, Sister Josephine made a mission of her charitable work. Now, her experiences have been compiled in a book. With an approach to healing that calls for compassion, grit, empathy, & confrontation, Sister Josephine has long contended that the accused murderers, rapists, & drug dealers she has befriended are among societys most needy. One man, responding to a heavy dose of Sisters tough love, confessed that, while jailed for burglary, he was also guilty of murder. In this powerful & inspiring account, Sister Josephine not only reflects on more than a decade of memories, but shares the letters & writings of many of the inmates she has befriended. In introducing readers to inmates, Sister offers insight into the symptoms of destructive behavior, the elements of rehabilitation, & the hope of spiritual realization. She also describes the obstacles of her crusade & the faith that kept her going.
