Written by Anita Caspary

Witness to Integrity details the dispute in the 1960s of the Immaculate Heart of Mary Sisters (I.H.M.) with James Francis McIntyre, the Cardinal Archbishop of Los Angeles. The book is a dramatic account of a community of women against intransigent church authorities. Written in a first-person account by Anita M. Caspary, who led the community during this episode in the history of American Catholicism, she recounts the challenges, personalities, betrayal and courage of the IHMs during this time of renewal called for by Vatican II.
