Spotlight on Women of Faith

As the annual March celebratation of Women's History Month draws to a close, we'd like to highlight a few particularly remarkable women whose stories inspire us to live better and more faithful lives. From 8th century Germany to 19th century Pennsylvania, these women lived with a boldness and dedication to Christ that made a mark on the world around them. What good things might God have for us to do in this time, in these days?

St. Leoba
Her very name means “Beloved,” and her first calling was to be loved by her divine spouse, Jesus Christ, and to allow his deep love for her to overflow to others.
 


St. Thérèse of Lisieux
Thérèse's autobiography, published after her early death from tuberculous at 24, has inspired many to a life of infinite love, yet humble littleness, in God.
