Selfless is the story of Sister Theophane, a passionate, driven nun dedicated to serving the poor around the world. Discover the inspiring story of how a precocious young girl from upstate New York became a servant and apostle to the poor in the jungle missions of Papua New Guinea, and, eventually, a prisoner of the Japanese in World War II.Selfless: The Story of Sr. Theophane's Missionary Life in the Jungles of Papua New Guinea was written in 1946 by a fellow sister of the Holy Spirit Missionary Sisters, but it is just now being published for the first time. Long held in anonymity, Sr. Theophane's amazing life of service and apostolic zeal is now finally being revealed to the world. Her story is a breathtaking tale that will inspire a new generation of Catholics to heed the call of service to Christ and others.

About the Author

Sister Immolata Reida was born Lillian Marie Reida in 1916. She entered the Holy Spirit Missionary Sisters postulancy in Techny, Illinois on October 15, 1934. From the beginning, like Sister Theophane, she showed a great desire to join the missionary ranks of her sisters. She served as an educator, writer, and editor for the Sisters, from 1944 to 1959, during which time she wrote this biography of Sister Theophane. In September of 1959, Sister Immolata finally realized her dream of becoming a missionary, and set sail for Japan. There she served as a missionary, educator, and principal of various schools until poor health forced her to return to the United States in 1987. She died in 1993.
