Among Women 152: Rooted in the Love of God

December 5, 2012

 This week’s episode:

“Blessed are They”: St Catherine of Genoa

“Among Women” Guest: Donna-Marie Cooper O’Boyle

This week we look at the faith and testimony of St Catherine of Genoa, one of the Christian mystics from the Middle Ages who, despite heartaches and depression in her life, went on to live a life of heroic love of God and service to others. Today I’m also joined by Catholic author and EWTN TV host, Donna-Marie Cooper O’Boyle who shares her wisdom about holy struggles as well, as she talks about some of the themes of her latest book, Rooted in Love, Our Calling as Catholic Women. 

I also spend a few moments recapping where I’ve been, and what’s to come in the next few weeks with Among Women.

    Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful. Thank you, Pat, for your program, in particular this one, with Donna Marie C. O’Boyle. I have been listening to you for some time (I think I found you through The Anchoress), and you never fail to touch my heart in some way — making it easier for me (I hope) to touch others’. Looking forward to your last program before Christmas. — Vicki Marani, Arlington, VA
