Abstract:

As a young girl, Anna Abrikosova burned with the desire to teach others what was good, true and beautiful. But it wasn't until she came into contact with the Roman Catholic Church, and in particular the Dominican Order, that she found the fullness of goodness, truth and beauty. So deeply did she fall in love with the truth that upon her return to her native Russia she did all within her means to help others come to know the truth. Soon other young women joined her in her work and the Byzantine Dominican Sisters were born. Despite threats of torture and death from the Communists who had taken over Russia, Mother Catherine, as she was now called, remained steadfast in her determination to bring the truth to others. For this she was arrested, imprisoned, and ultimately suffered a martyr's death. This short biography of Mother Catherine is an introduction to a heroic woman whose passionate desire for truth has caused the Catholic Church to consider her a "true confessor of the faith" and a martyr of the Russian Church.
