IF YOU LOVE: THE STORY OF ANNA DENGEL

 

Author: Miriam Therese Winter
Paperback, 483 pages

“If You Love” is the fascinating story of Dr. Anna Dengel, the Foundress of Medical Mission Sisters (MMS).  The book, researched and eloquently written by Sister Miriam Therese Winter, MMS, is an intriguing account of Mother Dengel’s early life in the Austrian Tyrol and her work as the only doctor at a hospital in North India in the early 1920s that led her to found MMS in 1925. 

Mother Dengel received an honorary Doctor of Science Degree in 1955 from Marquette University stating, “Mother Dengel, MD, had the dauntless courage to pioneer in an  uncultivated area of the Lord’s vineyard … this incredible accomplishment would be only a pious dream but for the profound faith and love that gave spiritual substance to the extraordinary talents of Mother Dengel and her unerring sense of values both human and divine … the National Federation of Catholic Physicians Guilds of the United States salutes with prayerful pride a professional equal and a spiritual superior...  Motivated by a call to respond, she did not let Church or gender restrictions hold her back.

Released in November 2016, “If You Love” can be purchased at bookstore.authorhouse.com, at amazon.com or on other online bookstores.
