Mission Libertad: History and Culture
Mission Libertad: History and Culture
Posted by Sr. Christina on September 24, 2012 08:29 Article Rating

We just released a new historical novel for teen readers, Mission Libertad by Lizette Lantigua. This exciting story introduced me to aspects of culture and history that I hadn’t had the opportunity to explore before.

One of my favorite things about Mission Libertad is the way Liz wove historical facts and events into her exciting story of escape and spies. Luisito’s story is so inspiring to me, knowing that the experiences of his family reflect the real life experiences of so many Cubans who Liz has had the opportunity to meet and interview. If you want to learn more about the experience of Cubans during the revolution, there’s a great video here about someone who fled Cuba as a child and later went on to create the first map of the country in one hundred years! The University of Miami has also put together an interactive online presentation on the experience of Cuban rafters. It’s a great place to find out more.

So many countries have their own unique Catholic traditions, saints, and images of the Blessed Mother. It was fascinating to me to learn about Cuba’s special image of Mary: Our Lady of Charity (Nuestra Señora de la Caridad). If I ever make it Miami, you can bet I’m going to check out her Shrine there!

Hoping that you enjoy Mission Libertad as much as I have. May you and the young people in your life join us in thanking God for the beauty of all the cultural backgrounds we share.
