In the mid-1950s, Sister Dulce (1914-1992) found a seriously injured man on the street and decided to take him to Hospital das Clínicas, in Salvador. Upon arriving at the hospital with the patient on an improvised stretcher, she was prevented from entering by security guards, who stated that the hospital did not admit people without the financial means to pay for medical care.

Outraged by the situation, Sister Dulce refused to leave the man on the street and spent the night with him on the sidewalk in front of the hospital, waiting for treatment. The episode generated great repercussion in the local and national press, and ended up drawing attention to the precariousness of the public health system at the time.

After this incident, Sister Dulce intensified her fight for more dignified and equal medical care for the poor population of Bahia, becoming an active voice in defending the rights of the sick and excluded. He founded hospitals, daycare centers, nursing homes and schools in Salvador. She was also responsible for campaigns to improve the living conditions of rural workers, and fought for the construction of popular housing.

For her social work, Sister Dulce was recognized nationally and internationally, receiving several awards and honors, such as being nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize in 1988. In 2019 she was canonized by Pope Francis, becoming the first Brazilian saint.

This biography of Sister Dulce, the best known, became a great sales success in Brazil and abroad after its launch in 1983, with 18 editions to date (here the 11th), helping a lot to publicize social and philanthropic work from Sister Dulce to the whole world.

This signature is the first I have found of the Saint in a decade.
