Curious about who Dorothy Stang was?  Here’s a brief bio from her wikipedia page:  Sister Dorothy Mae Stang, S.N.D., (7 July 1931 – 12 February 2005) was an American-born, Brazilian member of the Congregation of the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur. She was murdered in Anapu, a city in the state of Pará, in the Amazon Basin of Brazil. Stang had been outspoken in her efforts on behalf of the poor and the environment, and had previously received death threats from loggers and land owners.

Inspired to learn more about this extraordinary, brave woman?  See Sister Roseanne Murphy’s book about her, “Martyr of the Amazon.”
