Among Women 180: Working Women, Leadership, and the Devotional Life

May 30, 2014

This episode:

“Blessed are They”: Saints devoted to Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament

“Among Women” Guest: Mary Wallace

On this episode I welcome back Mary Wallace, PhD, from Louisiana State University. Together we discuss the feminine genius, and the particular leadership strengths of women in the world, and listen as Mary makes suggestions for strengthening the devotional life in working women. In this particular episode, rather than focus on one particular saint, I’m offering commentary on adoration of the Blessed Sacrament drawn from the quotes and writings of some women saints. We’ll explore the thoughts of St Jeanne Jugan, St Therese of Lisieux, St Elizabeth Seton, St Bernadette Soubirous, St Catherine Labore, and Blessed Teresa of Calcutta.

    Thank you for this podcast! It made my day, it inspired me. Although I spend more time at home with my little son, my timetable is pretty busy so all dilemma about time, work and pray are also mine. I miss for a day only for God and I love the idea that Mary Wallace talked about. I heard something similar from a nun a few years ago. For me your podcast is something like this – like a good retreat! I thank God my son sleeps during our everyday walks and give me time to pray and listen to your podcast.
    God blesses you, Pat!
    I admire your work – it’s amazing that you made 180 podcasts! 🙂

      Kasia, there are so many seasons to a mother’s life. It is ever-changing. Yet we need to stay close to God no matter what the season! I’m grateful that you listen and took the time to leave a comment here. Please share Among Women with your network of friends and family.
