“Blessed are They”: St Therese of Lisieux
“Among Women” Guest: Leah Jacobson
This week we look at the recent news of Pope Francis’ comments about a” theology of women in the church.” I share my reactions, and my recent writing on the subject. I’m also grateful to introduce Leah Jacobson in our “Among Women” segment. Her faith and vision helped to found The Guiding Star Project.
In the “Blessed Are They” segment, I read from St Therese’s Story of a Soul where she describes herself as the “the little flower” and how we find our identity within God’s “garden”.
Among Women takes the 33 Day Challenge to Pray the Rosary, sponsored by Real Men Pray the Rosary!
