Angel Studios announces the release of The Mother Cabrini Companion devotional and The World is Too Small Cabrini biography. Releasing in conjunction with the major-motion picture CABRINI, these books offer a unique opportunity to delve deeper into the extraordinary life and teachings of Francesca Cabrini, also known as St. Frances Xavier Cabrini, the first American saint. The Mother Cabrini Companion devotional and The World is Too Small Cabrini biography are both published by Sophia Institute Press and will be in stores and online April 9, 2024.

“The film CABRINI only scratches the surface of this inspiring woman and her incredible legacy,” explains Sophia Press publisher Charlie McKinney. “These new books allow viewers to go deeper into  her writings and be further inspired to serve others and continue building out her Empire of Hope.” 

The World is Too Small: The Life and Times of Mother Cabrini takes readers on an extraordinary journey into the phenomena that was Francesca Cabrini. This best-selling biography by Theodore Maynard is a testament to the indomitable spirit of Mother Cabrini – a visionary Italian-American religious sister who defied the odds, founded the Missionary Sisters of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, and became the first American saint.  This special edition re-release features an introduction by Cardinal Timothy Dolan of New York.

Complementing the biography, The Mother Cabrini Companion: A Spiritual Journey with a Courageous Woman of God by Kristen Theriault offers a weekly guide into the profound teachings of Mother Francesca Cabrini.  The devotional is a perfect companion to the highly anticipated film, allowing readers to connect deeply with Mother Cabrini's spirituality, explore her writings, and gain insights into a life grounded in faith, prayer, and boundless love.
