According to the pattern; the story of Dr. Agnes McLaren and the Society of Catholic Medical Missionaries by Katherine Burton ( Book )
4 editions published in 1946 in English and held by 210 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Step by step Agnes McLaren, a Scottish woman, shaped from her own life and her own faith what was to become a widespread organization of love and charity patterned directly on the work of the great Samaritan. She chose to leave her Edinbugh home of wealth and comfort to study medicine at a time when few would open that profession to women. Together with brilliant companions of her day, Sophia Jex-Blake and Jane Taylour among others, she took an active part in the fight for woman's suffrage and against the evil of white slavery. Late in life when she heard of the need for women doctors in far away India, where the customs of the purdah did not permit men doctors to attend women patients, she knew she must help there. Feeling her years too advanced for active work in India she campaigned for interest in the crying needs of the women of that land, and raised money for others to carry out her plans. She even journeyed to India in her old age, and drew up a program for medical aid that was to be carried out after her death. At the time she died, a younger woman was being trained by her to take her place. In recent years this woman has established and made a fact what was the dream of Dr. McLaren's life: a band of professionally trained medical missionaries to work among the women and children of India. Katherine Burton tells in her human and inspiring terms of these two women who used the tools of love and faith and the skilled ability of long training according to a pattern of love and sympathetic assistance laid out for them by the Healer of Galilee. -from dust jacket
